The Broadway Market is the country’s longest running community marketplace, and ever since 1888 has been known as a fun place to find unique products and great personal service. Merchants range from vendors with meat stands, poultry stands, produce counters, bakeries, delis, candy stands and restaurants. Many Broadway Market merchants are family-owned businesses, passed from generation to generation, and have created some of Buffalo’s best known and best loved foods.
The Broadway Market is open all year from Monday – Saturday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., as well as this year on Sunday, December 21. The Market is located at 999 Broadway between Gibson and Lombard Streets in Buffalo’s Historic Broadway-Fillmore Neighborhood.
