A Farmers Market – Hertel Has It

This past weekend a friend of mine came to town from the outskirts of Boston (not Boston, NY). She told me that although she lives minutes from a number of farms, she really loves the farmers markets that she has attended in Buffalo. That took me by surprise, but at the same time, I know what she means. To be able to go to one place and find such an eclectic mix of healthy produce… and of course the residents who attend always make for excellent people watching.
Now residents of North Buffalo can tout their own farmers market – a market that will launch July 23rd and will feature (so far) Hens Honey Bee Farm, Rizzo Farm, Sweet Temptations du Jour, Yancey’s Fancy Cheese, Pasta Temptations, Chateau Buffalo/Dancing Buffalo Cidre, Deb’s Delights and Summertime Blooms. Vendors from the Buffalo Indie Market will also be on hand to contribute to the diversity of the market. Thanks to the efforts of Holy Spirit Church, Chateau Buffalo, Pride of New York and the Buffalo Indie Market, the Hertel Market has found enough support to get off the ground. And just like the Riverside, University District, Bidwell, and Downtown markets, the Hertel Market will need plenty of support from the neighborhood to launch successfully.
*Vendors at the Hertel Avenue Farmers Market (located in the Holy Spirit Church parking lot at the corner of Hertel and Delaware Avenues) will sell their wares from 3 pm – 6:30 pm every Wednesday July 23rd through October.
For more info on the event, as well as many other Hertel activities, visit the new Hertel website.
