Located in beautiful Bidwell Parkway in the heart of the Elmwood Village, the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market is considered by many to be the best market of its type in Western New York. In fact, Artvoice recognized the market in its most recent "Best of Buffalo" issue and, judging from the ever-increasing crowds, it's a sentiment shared by many.
The Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market is a producer-only market, meaning that all our vendors grow or produce what they sell themselves—absolutely no reselling is allowed. In this way, our patrons know they are dealing directly with source—no middlemen, no compromises. They also know they're helping to create a healthy and diverse local economy.
The Market is open every Saturday from mid-May to mid-December. Vendors are open for business from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
In addition to the products available from our vendors, events ranging from musical entertainment to cooking demonstrations are scheduled throughout the year. For more information about upcoming events, see our Market Calendar.

Vendors at the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market are very special. Here's one you should get to know.
Bozard Farm is located in Medina, New York, on Route 104, about a mile and a half east of the Town of Ridgeway. Bruce Bozard bought the farm in 1967. In 1969 Bruce started his roadside farm stand with a card table, some wild blackberries and a few extra potatoes from the garden. The roadside farm table was a success, so Bruce built a roadside farm stand and has been selling his produce there ever since. The farm began on 35 acres, but expanded in recent years when Bruce purchased an additional 43 acres across the road from the original farm. Bozard Farm has been a part of the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market for six years.
Bozard Farm now raises about 25 acres of vegetables. The farm’s main crop is sweet corn, which accounts for about 10-12 acres of the farm. Bozard Farm also raises quite a few cole crops, which include cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts and cauliflower. Bruce Bozard raises 3-4 acres of potatoes, along with onions, summer squash, peppers, tomatoes, and about a half acre of peaches.
