Visiting the Broadway Market in preparation for Easter has been a tradition in Western New York for more than 100 years. Although it is open all year round, this is the busiest time of year for the market which extends its hours on the days leading up to Easter. The aisles are filled with throngs of enthusiastic shoppers. Many of the businesses at the Broadway Market are well-known to regular shoppers because they have been owned by the same families who pass them from one generation to the next. Seasonal food and craft vendors are also on the scene at this time of year. Cakes, pastries and other baked goods, candy, meats, fish, butter lambs and prepared Polish foods abound. You can have a cup of coffee, eat a piece of poppy cake and listen to live musical entertainment. Bring your kids to visit the Easter Bunny and see how many marshmallow peeps they can consume in one minute at the second annual Peep Eating Contest at 1:00pm on Saturday March 27th. For more information about the Broadway Market and all the Easter-related events taking place there, visit broadwaymarket.org or call 716-893-0705.
