I was scrolling through Instagram the other day when I saw a post about a new business in downtown Rochester. I work downtown, and from time to time I'll grab lunch at City Market so I knew exactly where the photo was taken, but I hadn't heard anything about Food Union.

Now, there has been a lot of news coming from downtown Rochester recently including a few stories on new restaurants. The Well Dining and Fuzzy's Italian Ice both recently opened, last we learned about two new restaurants that will be opening this summer in the building where Hefe Rojo and Newts were located, and now we know that Food Union is opening this week.
