When it comes to finding fresh local foods, you simply can’t get any fresher than what you’ll find at local farmers markets. 

The opening of the Elmwood Village Farmers Market on Saturday, May 7 unofficially marks the start of summer in Buffalo. For more than two decades, it has been a favorite seasonal tradition for many families in the Buffalo community.

The Elmwood Village Farmers Market is all about bringing together growers, makers, and producers to offer fresh and unique products to the local community. 

Plus, it’s an opportunity to come and meet the people who grow your food, ask questions, and learn more about what you will be eating and drinking.

When we say everyone, we really mean everyone! The Elmwood Village Farmers Market is a complete family affair with shopping and entertainment for all ages to enjoy.

Since the Elmwood Village Farmers Market is a producer-only market, this means everything is grown and/or produced by the vendors themselves in the WNY region.

You can find 40+ weekly local vendors selling fruits, vegetables, baked goods, organics, fresh meat, cut flowers, wine, craft beer, spirits, eggs, dairy, honey, maple syrup, cheese, artisan pizzas, crepes, and more! Plus, there’s musical entertainment and community booths here. 

The layout of the market for this season will be in the Parkway that runs from Elmwood Ave to West Delavan to accommodate grass seeding efforts by the Olmsted Parks. Although the layout changed, not to worry, it is still very walkable and centrally located.

The Elmwood Village Farmers Market is made possible in part by presenting sponsor, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York. 

To increase access to fresh, healthy, local foods, the Elmwood Village Association runs the market’s Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system which allows those who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to use their benefits at qualifying vendor stands. More information is available at the Elmwood Village Association tent at the market.

The Elmwood Village Farmers Market is located at the corner of Elmwood Avenue and Bidwell Parkway on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. starting on May 7. 

Rain or shine, the Elmwood Village Farmers Market is set up here through November. Stop by on Saturdays for a 100% local shopping experience!
