Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market Celebrates Opening Day May 7

The Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market, a Western New York tradition featuring more than 30 vendors selling fresh, seasonal and local products, opens for the 2011 season on Saturday, May 7. Hours at the open-air market are from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, rain or shine.

Local singer/guitarist Kate Shaffer will kick off the market’s entertainment schedule, performing from approximately 10 to 11:30 a.m. At 10:15 a.m., a special presentation will honor the winner of the market’s 2011 poster competition, JoAnn Andolina of Williamsville.

Additionally, the market welcomes three local nonprofit organizations who will be distributing information about their organizations. Joining the market on May 7 will be representatives of the Massachusetts Avenue Project, Buffalo CarShare and Child & Family Services.

A new Electronic Benefit Transfer system will also greet visitors to the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market during the 2011 season. The EBT system allows individuals and families receiving public assistance to purchase products from eligible market vendors. Information will be available each week at the market.

And finally, Arrowhead Spring Vineyards will be on-hand to offer wine tasting at the market on May 7.
