The University Community Farmers Market began in 2007 as a community event to bring fresh produce and market goods and support local business in the neighborhood. Each year more vendors and events are added to make the market an enjoyable community gathering place for all.
This market has been a collaboration between the University at Buffalo, the surrounding South Campus neighborhoods and local organizations to promote wellness and community sustainability through the availability of fresh produce and locally grown food while promoting local entrepreneurs.
The University Community Farmers Market final date is October 17, 2015 from 8:00AM until 1:00PM.
As the Market concludes its ninth season, the Board of the University Community Market wishes to extend its sincere appreciation to all the customers, farmers and artisans how have made this community resource all possible. We would also like to thank the University Heights Collaborative and the Gloria Parks Community Center for helping promote the market and taking care of the finances, and the University of Buffalo Office of Community Relations for providing personnel, space for storage and meetings along with financial support over the course of the market.
Finally, the Board is looking for new leadership if the market is to continue. If you are interested in participating in the leadership and continuance of the Market please contact the University Heights Collaborative (firstname.lastname@example.org).
