New Farmers’ Market Coming to West Seneca in May 2014

 

West Seneca officials gave approval Monday for a new farmers’ market that would open in May 2014 in the center of town. 

The upscale open-air farmers’ market and marketplace on the grassy hill at Main Street and Union Road, in front of Town Hall and within walking distance of several neighborhoods, was proposed by West Seneca native Joe Kirchmyer. Kirchmyer is also involved with marketing efforts for the popular Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market in Buffalo and the Winter Market at Horsefeathers on Buffalo’s West Side.
