Blue Eyed Baker

Blue Eyed Baker has been showing up at local markets.

As the Amazon boxes pile up, keep in mind that there are plenty of interesting new local vendors who have been underexposed during a pandemic winter. Many of these small producers are regulars at summer farmers markets, but they can also be found at indoor locations, as follows:

Buffalo Artisan Food Traders 

Considered Western New York’s first all-local grocery store, BAFT features a dizzying array of products, including cheese, popcorn, jellies, jams, pierogi, pickles, chocolate, coffee, tea, and—we mean this—much more. BAFT offers free local delivery within a fifteen-mile radius of its Amherst location (near Whole Foods).

4558 North Bailey Avenue, Amherst

Queen City Traveling Market

This monthly market is always a pop-up. It has featured such vendors as Blue Eyed Baker, KupKates, Butter Block, Pacific Cloud Seafoods, Erba Verde Farms, Community Beer Works, Lakeward Spirits, and Chateau Buffalo, to name a few. The monthly weekend events also include art demonstrations and other diversions. It’s hosted by BAFT, FreshFix, and Snowy Owl Kombucha & Tea.

Follow Queen City Traveling Market on Facebook to get locations.

Broadway Market

Easter season vending should be in full operation by March 6. Expect all the food favorites, including Polish pastries, freshly made sausages, other meats, vegetables, and prepared foods, as well as plants, decorations, and much more. It is always important to support the Market; it’s also fun.
