“We had tremendous support from our vendors, town officials and our dedicated customers last season, which was the very first year of the market,” said West Seneca resident Joe Kirchmyer, the market’s organizer. “We invite the residents of West Seneca and beyond to come spend some time at the market, watch a baseball game in the park and enjoy some live music at the Lion’s Bandshell. It’s a great way to spend an evening!”

In the event of unfavorable weather, the market moves into the parking lot in front of the West Seneca Ice Rink.
