Broadway Market - Buffalo's Public Market

Postby Kelly » Mon Jun 16, 2014 10:38 am

Can anyone, especially Chris B. tell us anything about this place? I haven't heard much. Wondering if it would be worth our while to photograph for Scenes.

I've looked at their website, and it looks ok - but first hand info is appreciated.

If you do go for pictures try to wait until next year Easter week. It's a bit of a Buffalo tradition to head there for food for Easter dinner. (butter lambs, etc.) Usually the Polish community because the market is in a traditionally Polish-American neighborhood. It used to be a more happening place pre-1980s. Nowadays be sure to wear a bulletproof vest if you head down there.

It scores a 4 on the RAC scale, so definitely not a great neighborhood.
