Been two weeks in a row, cuz I love it here. I just want to know one thing. How does everyone get up so early? :zzz:
I am strong, because I've been weak.
I am fearless, because I've been afraid.
I am wise, because I've been foolish.

I enjoy it until I walk by the fish stalls and then I don't enjoy it so much.

Don't walk by the fish stalls then... :rimshot:

If you enjoy the Public Market - and have interest in its history, this is a great book. I'm reading it now and the old photos are wonderful! It's very expensive online, so you're better off picking it up at the market office for $20 or finding it at your local library. :up:

Rochester Public Market ranked top in United States
Rochester received more than 5,000 votes, nearly double the total for the second-place finisher in the large-market category...

Rochester sure has a lot of pride in its public farmners market, but in the cities I have visited, I have seen similar if not better. Including two in NYC.
I think there is just a mentality Rochesterians have that ours in unique.
Either way... I need to make it there next week to stock up on fruit.

Magnum photographers at the Public Market today
I've seen a couple of other photographers do some pretty cool stuff here lately. Will be anxious to see how and what these guys shoot. :popcorn:
Pictures will allegedly be posted on their Facebook page.
Not easily starstruck, I'll have to admit that I had no clue who/what a Magnum photographer is. Whatever..... ;)

A little bird told me that Mikell was hangin' out in the rain with them.
Ok, Mikell. Post some photos here! :mrgreen:
Pretty please?

Here's the link to my Picasa album...If I have time I'll post a few of the pics...but you can see them here:
I gather these photographers are pretty famous...I did check out a couple of their web pages...some amazing work.
I was hoping that they would have an exhibit of photos at the market...but it was just a portrait shoot for a project called House of Pictures...
so...decided...why not participate while I was there...and have a world famous photographer take my portrait.
...worth the cheap thrill to stand in the rain... :)

It must've been a cool experience! Thank you for sharing these! Were you given the picture that they took of you?

No...they gave everyone a card with an invitation to "find your free portrait next Saturday at our pop-up exhibition" ...Rorhbach Warehouse, Railroad St., Rochester. ...and visit all week at the Visual Studies Workshop on Prince St. to see the project unfold.

It sounds really interesting.
