The Larkin Market is “Social Shopping”

Beginning on Thursday July 10th, from 4 – 7:30 pm and running Thursdays through September 18th, 2014, the Larkin Market is set to take Buffalo by storm. Already organizers have enlisted over 60 venders each week, selling sundries such as local food and produce, prepared foods, baked goods, arts, jewelry, crafts, vintage. There will be tastings, and beer/wine, along with a healthy dose of light acoustic music.

“We have designed a special Larkin Market Tote which will be available for free to all “Social Shoppers” at the opening Market day on July 10th,” Leslie Zemsky (Director of Fun) told me. “After that it will be available at Larkin Square events for 3 dollars with all proceeds supporting art in the new Children’s Hospital!”


“We’re excited to welcome so many local businesses for a unique shopping experience that we expect will be enjoyed by the thousands who live and work in Larkinville, as well as the greater community,” Leslie continued. “We anticipate that the Larkin Market will turn shopping from a chore to another fun experience in Larkin Square.”

“Now folks have 3 reasons to come to Larkin Square every week…”

Tuesday: Food Truck Tuesdays
Wednesday: Live at Larkin
Thursday: Larkin Market

Don’t forget, when the pickleball courts are available and open, it’s free to play (see here). For those who want to relax a bit more, a Little Library (made by The Foundry) is also available on the grounds (see here).
