Updated June, 2020

Have you heard? Due to Covid-19, we’ve temporarily changed our motto to “Stay In, Buffalo”.  And for the foreseeable future we will be posting content that shares how our community can continue to support local businesses while adhering to guidelines set by the CDC.⁠

While many places, events, and festivities seem to be closed and canceled for the foreseeable future, one thing we can look forward to is the opening of local farmers markets. Farmers markets are deemed essential which means they have been given permission to open with new safety measures in place. In following CDC guidelines, farmers markets can be the perfect opportunity to get out of the house, go for a stroll, and pick up some of the freshest produce local to WNY. In a time when the community is relying on each other to stay strong and survive this pandemic, farmers markets are a great way to support your neighborhood farmers.

Use this guide to see what markets are open near you and what changes may be occurring with the markets in relation to Covid-19. As more information becomes available we will update so be sure to check back frequently!
