Chandler Street vendor

OPEN-AIR FARE: Artisan cheeses are one of the many delicious items available from Chandler Street vendors. 

When the usual indoor markets did not open in 2020, Chandler Street vendors and producers stepped in, providing safe open-air shopping for freshly made artisan goods and limited produce between mid-November and April. While offerings vary from week to week, expect everything from coffee to artisan cheeses to Thai treats—as well as such well-known favorites as Southern Junction barbecue. It’s refreshing that Western New York is embracing the idea that food shopping need not move inside during the cold months. Follow the market on Instagram @chandlerstreetwintermarket or on Facebook under the same name.
