Let’s be honest: Is there anything better than summertime in Western New York? 

The answer is no. Our summers, in the words of Tina Turner, are *simply the best*. 

To kick off your summer on a high note, Step Out Buffalo’s annual Buffalo Artisans & Flea (aka: The summer event that you need to be at) is back and better than ever! 

About the Market

The Buffalo Artisans and Flea is a modern shopping experience created by the same Step Out Buffalo team that brings you the biannual Makers + Shakers: Boozy Artisan Market every spring and holiday season. At our new location outside in the 500 Seneca lot downtown, the market will feature some of the best local creators, artists, and small businesses all in one place. 

The vibes are immaculate: sunshine, music, food trucks, free boozy samples, and a curated selection of all local vendors— it’s basically an ideal summer day.

At this elevated market experience, you can expect to find a wide variety of new and vintage collections that include home goods, apparel, candles, jewelry, Buffalo-themed goodies, accessories, paper goods, food & drink, beauty & spa, art, craft booze, gifts, and everything in between. Plus, adoptable dogs and cats from the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter, a photo station, and tons of other fun surprises along the way. 

Pro Tip: Make sure to check out our cocktail garden where you’ll find The Bubbly Bar by Alchemy and all of those boozy samples from local makers!
