Buffalo, NY – Providence Farm Collective (PFC) is thrilled to announce the return of the PFC Farmers Market for the third consecutive year. Located at 130 Grant Street, in the M&T Bank parking lot, the market will run every Saturday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. This unique market brings fresh, culturally significant produce to Buffalo’s diverse West Side neighborhood.

Mahamud Mberwa, PFC’s Farm Mentor shares, “We are excited to kick off another season of the PFC Farmers Market. This market is unlike any other, with crops from around the world like amaranth, African eggplant, African maize, roselle, sweet potato leaves, as well as other traditional American staples.”

With support from the USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program, PFC is proud to offer SNAP/Food Stamp and Double Up Food Bucks benefits, ensuring increased fresh food access for all in our WNY community. Additionally, the Rich Family Foundation is sponsoring $10 vouchers for SNAP recipients, reinforcing their commitment to supporting access to fresh nutritious foods.

Thanks to these important programs that support fresh produce access, PFC farmers sold $22,636.00 of locally grown vegetables to under-resourced customers last year. This year, PFC farmers aim to surpass that with the influx of additional support, ensuring even more families have access to affordable and culturally significant produce. The PFC Farmers Market is more than just a place to buy fresh produce; it is a celebration of community, culture, and resilience.
