Update on Broadway Market Revitalization Project and Video of Last Community Online Meeting
In order to help rejuvenate the City of Buffalo’s Broadway Market as a sustainable and vibrant year-round shopping hub, the State of New York, through Empire State Development, has dedicated several million dollars to enhance the City of Buffalo’s recent investment of over $2 million in the existing market. The goal is to develop the market as a focal point for the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood and eventually, as a regional attraction. The Market historically has played an important role as a center for year-round, international, owner-operated, affordable fresh and prepared food shops and neighborhood services. As the community around it has changed, the Market is now seeking to maximize its relevance to Broadway-Fillmore and to expand its customer base in order to serve as a sustainable stimulus to neighborhood development, as well as an attraction for the region.
