BACKGROUND

Since 1888, the Broadway Market has been known for unique products and personal service, with meat and poultry stands, produce counters, bakeries, candy stands and restaurants. Family-owned businesses, passed from generation to generation, have created some of Buffalo’s best loved foods. The City of Buffalo took over the operations of the Broadway Market in October of 2008. With a new Executive Director since October 2009, and the cooperation of the Department of Public Works, the Broadway Market is undergoing a major revitalization effort as it becomes a year round destination.
