The 8th season of the University Community Farmers Market

This year the University Community Farmers Market will be moving to a new location on the Main Street sidewalk at the foot of Englewood Avenue. Other than the change of scenery, the rest of the market will operate business as usual.

“The University Community Farmers Market improves the quality of life in our neighborhood by providing an opportunity to buy healthy fresh produce from local farmers, to support local artisans, and to meet our neighbors in a relaxed outdoor environment,” said Gail Willsky, Market Manager and faculty in the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

Some of the offerings that will be featured at this year’s market are fresh fruits and vegetables, breakfast breads, homemade jams, jellies, and relishes, herbs, plants, flowers, and in the fall season mums, pumpkins, winter squash, ornamental corn, corn stalks, and gourds.

The eighth season of the University Community Farmers Market will open Saturday May 17th on the University at Buffalo South (Main Street) Campus.  8 am to 1 pm each Saturday from May 17th through October 18th. Attendees can park for free in the UB Townsend parking lot on the South Campus or on the streets of Englewood, Heath and Merrimac.
