You’ll find stores at our regional malls you won’t find anywhere else in Upstate New York!

This is a highly creative area, rich with the works of artists and craftspeople. Whatever your lifestyle – there’s a shop that will enthrall you.

There are the treasures, antiques, and special finds on charming Main Streets throughout the region’s historic and picturesque towns and canal villages, in Rochester’s city neighborhoods, museum gift shops, and little galleries.

We haven’t forgotten the gourmet! Check out specialty food shops selling everything from wine jellies, set-your-hair-on-fire sauces, to ethnic pastries. Follow the Chocolate Trail. Wander two of the best public and farmers markets in the U.S. - in Rochester and Ithaca.

And don’t forget Trader Joe’s at Pittsford Plaza in Rochester – along with the beautiful two-story Barnes & Noble stand-alone bookstore
