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.
For many long-time patrons of the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market, the season doesn't really start until the iconic Tom Tower's Farm truck appears at the corner of Bidwell and Elmwood. Tom Tower's Farm is a family business that is nearly 200 years-old. Though famous throughout the region for his peaches, Tower is no ordinary fruit grower. He complements an exceptional array of high quality local produce with a dedication to agricultural diversity and a deep knowledge of the industry. Besides peaches, Tower sells other fruits as well as over 25 varieties of heirloom tomatoes.
Tower's educational and research efforts include programs for area children who frequently visit his Youngstown-Lockport Road farm, annual hosting of foreign students to study his business, ongoing experimental agricultural programs with Cornell University, guest visits to foreign countries, college lecturing and more.
