Bulk local produce straight from the farm — including blueberries, cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, peaches, Bartlett pears, Concord grapes and apples — is now being offered through Farmers & Artisans, 4557 Main St., Snyder. The store will be accepting pre-orders for flats, eight-quart and half-bushel sizes, depending on the item as the produce becomes available.

“We know it’s not always easy or convenient to drive out to a farm or visit a farmers’ market,” said Farmers & Artisans owner Julie Blackman. “We hope this added convenience will appeal to our customers, especially those with an interest in preserving and canning so that they can enjoy our nutritious and flavorful local produce year-round.”

To say that the newest additions to the staff at the Western New York Land Conservancy — Jajean Rose-Burney and his wife Ana Hernández Balzac — have interesting resumes would be a dramatic understatement. While volunteers in the Peace Corps, Jajean and Ana spent 27 months in Puebla, Mexico, successfully tackling problems that often seemed insurmountable. 

Among other things, Jajean helped protect a globally important wetland twice the size of the city of Buffalo from rapid and unplanned urban development, while Ana enabled nearly 100 schools throughout the state of Puebla to become certified “Green Schools.”

Farmers & Artisans, a unique Williamsville store moving soon to Snyder, offers a delicious mix of local produce, bakery items, meats and farm market products. And, they are now offering sign-up for their popular vegetable, fruit and flower shares for a second consecutive growing season.

These shares are similar to traditional Community Supported Agriculture programs, with consumers subscribing to a weekly portion of fresh and local produce and flowers throughout the summer and fall seasons. It’s a great way to support Western New York farms, enjoy fresh and delicious produce, and save time and money. Customers may sign up for one, two or all three shares, and discounts are available when signing up for multiple shares.
