Located in beautiful Bidwell Parkway in the heart of the Elmwood Village, the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market is considered by many to be the best market of its type in Western New York. In fact, Artvoice recognized the market in its most recent "Best of Buffalo" issue and, judging from the ever-increasing crowds, it's a sentiment shared by many.
The Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market is a producer-only market, meaning that all our vendors grow or produce what they sell themselves—absolutely no reselling is allowed. In this way, our patrons know they are dealing directly with source—no middlemen, no compromises. They also know they're helping to create a healthy and diverse local economy.
The Market is open every Saturday from mid-May to mid-December. Vendors are open for business from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
In addition to the products available from our vendors, events ranging from musical entertainment to cooking demonstrations are scheduled throughout the year. For more information about upcoming events, see our Market Calendar.

Vendors at the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market are very special. Here's one you should get to know.
Hanova Hills Farm is dedicated to the production of Lake County Premium Natural Beef. We are located in northern Chautauqua County, about 45 miles south and west of Buffalo in the towns of Hanover and Villanova. Our 550 acres are devoted to pasture for rotational grazing and to raising hay and corn for our livestock. We are committed to the land; we enhance the environment by adhering to earth-friendly farming practices. We want to preserve our natural habitat for generations to come.
Our mission is to produce artisan, natural meats that combine superior taste and tenderness with assured food safety for our customers. All our beef animals are born and raised on this farm. Our artisan beef is pasture raised, hand-processed in a local plant, then aged to concentrate flavor and ensure tenderness. Our approved ‘natural’ label is a warranty that our beef is raised free of growth hormones and antibiotics. For us, this also means that our cattle enjoy a diet rich in quality pasture and hay with some corn added as they are finished. This careful feeding on the farm – rather than in a crowded feedlot – means our beef is healthier. You will notice a distinctive flavor, the way beef used to taste.
