Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market Lists October 22 Activities

The Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market, a Western New York tradition featuring more than 30 vendors selling fresh, seasonal and local products, is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday, rain or shine. Providing musical entertainment at the open-air venue this week, October 22, will be singer/guitarist Kate Shaffer. Wine-tasting will be courtesy of Leonard Oakes Estate Winery.

The market also welcomes several community groups this Saturday, including the Richmond Ashland National Register Historic District Initiative, WNY Land Conservancy, Buffalo ReuseIT and the Border Community Service Project. Additionally, registered dietitian Nicole Klem will be on hand from 10 a.m. to noon to answer any nutrition-related questions you may have. 

Also this Saturday, the Horsefeathers Community Market, 346 Connecticut St., Buffalo, will celebrate National Food Day from 5 to 10 p.m. The event will feature food tasting, food trucks, guest speakers, informational tables, children’s activities, live music, tours and much more — including some of your favorite EBFM vendors! Come see this historic building that's about to come back to life, thanks to our friends at The Frizlen Group!

An Electronic Benefit Transfer system is in place at the market for the 2011 season. The EBT system allows individuals and families receiving public assistance to purchase products from eligible market vendors. And now, the market is also participating in the Fresh Checks program. For every $5 worth of tokens that you purchase at the market using your EBT card, you will receive a Fresh Checks coupon worth an additional $2. Buy $20 worth of tokens with your EBT cards, and you'll receive an additional $8 in Fresh Check coupons, redeemable at participating market vendors. Visit the Elmwood Village table this Saturday for details!
