Sick of Chain Grocery Stores? Where Can You Shop Local + Maybe Find Something Different
Buffalo is a hub of awesome food and diverse opportunities to try something DIFFERENT. We love Tops and Wegmans, and they are all over WNY, which is very convenient, but we like to spice things up every once in a while. So where should you go when you get sick of Tops and Wegmans?
The food there is as diverse as it is rare. You'll hear Burmese, English, Hindi, Urdu, Thai, Amharic and more languages as you walk through the West Side Market. You'll be able to try food from Burma, Ethiopia, Thailand and more and shop for items from Africa, Burma, Nepal and more.
