Market Spotlight – Bolton Farms

This week on the Food About Town Market Spotlight we are taking a look at one of the mainstays of Rochester’s market scene, Bolton Farms out of Hilton, NY. They are one of my go to places when I am looking for greens and fresh herbs and due to their hydroponic...


Chanterelles and Neopolitan Pizza Dough

This pizza making excursion started at the Public Market as many of them do since nothing inspires me to cook more than fresh ingredients. This time I ran into my landlord who happens to grow mushrooms at Timber Trails Forest Farm in Bristol, NY (lucky me right?) and I got...


Marty’s Party and Boulderfest

Last weekend brought me to a couple of events around town that either revolved around food or had food there so I figured I’d throw a quick recap up for everyone. Friday night was the Marty’s Meats one year anniversary party at Richmond’s Tavern on Richmond Street just off of...


BC’s Chicken Coop

Market Spotlight – Tan Childs

I’m a regular at both the Rochester Public Market on Saturday mornings and the Brighton Market on Sunday mornings and I’m trying to spend more time at other markets around town as well. There are an absolute ton of interesting places at the various markets that don’t get publicized enough...


F.A.T. Episode 5 – Voula’s Greek Sweets

Episode 5 of the Food About Town podcast features my chat with Voula Stratton from Voula’s Greek Sweets on Monroe Ave. This is my favorite podcast so far and I really enjoyed spending some time talking at the restaurant about her history with food, the balance between work and personal...
