Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market Announces August Events

The best thing about the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market? “That everything is local,” said one frequent visitor. “I get to know the people supplying the strawberries for my grandkids, the tomatoes for my salsa. I know where it came from and who grew it.”

A wide variety of family friendly special events and demonstrations are planned throughout the season. August events and attractions include:

Aug. 7: Classical violinist David Adamczyk, Rose Garden Childhood Center, Kid Biz, and a flame-working demonstration courtesy of Expressive Glass.

Aug. 14: Guest chef demonstration with Chef William Metzgar.

Aug. 21: Cooking demonstration by Ron Glatzhofer of Saltamontes Salsa; musical entertainment by the Buffalo Chamber Players; and the Center for Resolution & Justice, Child & Family Services.

Aug. 28: Guest chef demonstration with Chef Bill Guarino of Shango, musical entertainment by the Six String Circus, and the Massachusetts Avenue Project.

One of Western New York’s favorite annual traditions, the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market opened for the 2010 season on May 8. Conveniently located at the corner of Elmwood Avenue and Bidwell Parkway in Buffalo, the market is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through Dec. 18.

The market features more than 30 vendors offering fruits, vegetables, baked goods, organics, fresh meat, cut flowers, wine, eggs, dairy, honey and much more in an open-air setting. Products available at the market are always fresh, seasonal and local.

Elmwood-Bidwell is a producer-only market, meaning that all vendors grow or produce what they sell — no middlemen and no compromises. Patrons know they are dealing directly with the source, helping to create a diverse and healthy local economy.
