Everyone loves a good farmers market. Well, everyone who’s anyone anyway. A stroll in the sun, buying what looks good, perhaps a little people watching while you bite into a freshly made doughnut (Duke’s of course). The following is our attempt at helping you make the most of your farmers market trips this year.
This work in progress farmers market guide covers all of WNY from the Southern Tier to Niagara County. As more information becomes available, we will update the guide, so check back often! As always, the season will play a large roll in what’s available. Below is a link to a seasonal chart for guidance on what to expect/what to buy at the market each week. Remember – visit early, visit often.
