In the late 1800’s, immigrants from all over the world started making the East side of Buffalo their new home. These new groups of people wanted to stay true to where they came from but, also embrace the new option of city life. This is how The Broadway Market was born in 1888. Soon after, the idea of this community center point became the second biggest business section in Buffalo. Nothing was able to stop people of different backgrounds wanting to come together, not even three physical structure changes. The current home of The Broadway Market was built in 1956 with 90,000-square feet of shopping area and two free parking lots. You can stop in anytime from 8am-5pm, Monday-Saturday.
The Broadway Market also holds special events during the Easter season. This weekend (18th and 19th) the market will be open both Saturday and Sunday! Saturdays hours are 8am-5pm and Sundays are 9am-4pm. There will be a variety of Easter vendors selling foods, art pieces, drinks, home décor, and much more! In between your shopping and eating, make sure to see the different performances! On Saturday the 18th, The Rince na Tiarna Irish Dancers will be on stage at 11am and Blarney Bunch will go on at 12:30pm-3:30pm. On Sunday the 19th, DJ Red will be performing at 12pm-3pm. We hope to see you there this weekend or throughout this holiday season!
