Old World Easter Feasting At Buffalo’s Historic Broadway Market

Butter Lambs, or Baranek wielkanocny in Polish

(Karen Seiger – Markets of  New York) I heard the stories about Buffalo’s Broadway Market from when my father-in-law was a kid. Growing up in the Polish neighborhood on the east side of town, Fred told stories of how beautiful and vibrant the market used to be in the 1930’s and ‘40’s. James used to go shopping there with his grandma, who never forgot her tote bag.

The Broadway Market opened in 1888 to serve the new wave of European immigrants coming to settle in Buffalo, NY. Generations of Buffalonians feel deep connections to this institution, especially within the Polish American community. Today, the market remains open year-round, although it is much smaller and not nearly as bustling as it used to be before the advent of suburbs and grocery stores. That is, until Easter rolls around!
