The YARDS is a collaborative art space in the heart of the historic Rochester Public Market. And like the Market, this dynamic gathering spot is in a constant state of creative transformation - continually bringing new sights, sounds, flavors and faces through it's door.

Part work studio (for Lea, Kristina, Tina, Lindsey, Rachel, Jackie & Rebecca) part collaborative art space, The YARDS is an open gathering place that welcomes all of Rochester to experience art as a living, breathing part of the world around us. Through groundbreaking installations, provocative performance, refreshing workshops and shared meals, we invite you to immerse yourself in this shared experience. The YARDS was founded in 2011 by Lea Rizzo and Sarah C. Rutherford, and continues to be a growing community of like-minded individuals. Feel free to email us or stop by!

Come visit us during our Open Hours - 10am-2pm Every Saturday!

Please also plan to visit Dichotomy a beautifully curated shop featuring over twenty local artist's and our new partners located within the space! Open Thursday's and Saturday's during market hours or by appointment.
