Farmers market spends winter at Buff State

The Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday from May to November. With the fall season setting in, the growing season, along with the farmers market, will be coming to an end. Kent Miller, owner of Plato Dale Farm in Arcade, has begun to take his chickens and turkeys off the pasture along with covering up vegetables. Mary Oakes Wilson, treasurer of Lynoaken Farms and Chelsea Pelsone of Tom Tower’s Farm, two Niagara County farms, explain that they will be transitioning to selling just apples for the winter months. The last day for the outdoor market will be Nov. 28. The market will move inside, to Buckham Hall, located near the Grant Street side of the SUNY Buffalo State campus, from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Saturdays from Dec. 5 to April 30. Free parking will be available on campus during market hours. By Troy Licastro and Tony Reyes
