This summer, West Side & Black Rock-Riverside Neighborhood Housing Services will take on a new project by hosting a one-day farmer’s market in the Black Rock neighborhood.
The market will run on Saturday, August 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Market Square on the corner of Niagara Street and Amherst Street. Freshly grown fruits and vegetables, home-baked goods, and handmade crafts will be for sale. The market will also feature a “Veggie Swap” table, at which fruit and vegetable growers may trade their own produce for other greens. Sign up to volunteer for the day here.
In conjunction with the farmer’s market, we will hold the (rescheduled) Home Matters fundraiser to benefit Project Homeless Connect, a program of the WNY Coalition for the Homeless that brings resources to homeless people in need. There will be over 50 raffle baskets, plus a grand prize of a three-hour tour for four on the Black Pearl Tall Ship.
The 8th annual Black Rock & Riverside Garden Tour will also take place that same day, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tours are free, self-guided, and will proceed rain or shine.
Vendors can still sign up for late registration here; all late registered vendors will need to provide their own table and chairs and pay the normal fee of $25. Please contact Brigidann Rauch at 877-3910 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org when registering.
