Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market Lists July 23 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, July 23, will be Breckenwood from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registered dietitian Nicole Klem will also be on hand from 10 a.m. to noon to answer any nutritional questions you may have. She will be stationed at the Elmwood Village Association table near Elmwood Avenue. 

The market also welcomes several community groups this week, including the Buffalo Animal Shelter, GrowWNY.org, the Richmond Ashland National Register Historic District Initiative and Hope for Cats. Arrowhead Spring Vineyards and Schulze Vineyards & Winery will offer wine-tasting. A Tour & Taste the Market event, hosted by Christa Glennie Seychew of Feed Your Soul, will take place beginning at 10 a.m. this Saturday. Please visit  www.eatlocalbuffalo.com for tour tickets and for more information.

A new 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!

For a complete list of market vendors and events, please visit the market’s newly redesigned website at www.elmwoodmarket.org. Frequent updates are also available by becoming a fan of the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market page on Facebook.
