On Friday November 24, Saturday, December 16, and Sunday December 17 (from noon – 4pm each day), WNY Food Shuttle and the Queen City Traveling Market will host special holiday events that include elements of Giving and Gifting: Food Drive + Holiday Market + Food & Drink.
The Queen City Traveling Market was founded during the pandemic by Snowy Owl Tea, Fresh Fix, and Buffalo Artisan Food Traders. The market was established as a way for small businesses to grow, by reaching more markets/venues throughout the city. Now, by teaming up with the WNY Food Shuttle during the holidays, these small businesses have found a way to give back to their hometown communities.
“The market is an opportunity to donate to WNYorkers in need, to keep your dollars local, shop green, support local farmers and artisans, and empower small business owners to grow and support each other. Vendors are all within the theme of local, artisan and eclectic goods: ranging from delicious handmade food- pierogi, popcorn, jam, pickles and sweets, to apothecary goods, paintings, jewelry, unique vintage clothing, and locally made tea, tinctures, and wine.” – The Queen City Traveling Market
The Queen City Traveling Market is teaming up with the WNY Food Shuttle at The Barrel Factory for three days, which means that everyone will have a chance to stop by and support this unique family-friendly celebration.
Pay a visit, and you will be happy to find plenty of food and drink, along with super unique gifts. This is a wonderful opportunity to support small local business owners, to participate in activities such as face painting and holiday crafts, and to make a worthy food donation during the holidays.
