The arrival of February brings lots of different things to Western New York. Not only are we that much closer to the end of winter and the start of spring, holidays like Easter, St. Patrick's Day, and Dingus Day are on the horizon. However, perhaps the best thing that happens when February rolls around is Black History Month.

Most people don't realize how big of a connection Buffalo and Western New York have to black history. Whether it's Buffalo's first permanent resident, other important figures in the development and prosperity of America, or key events that have helped shape where we are today, Buffalo's contribution to black history is a key lynchpin in American history.

With Black History Month in full swing, there are all sorts of events happening all over Western New York to learn more about black history in the region and plenty of opportunities to support black-owned businesses.

One of those chances is happening at Buffalo's Broadway Market every Saturday in February.

From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Saturday, the Broadway Market will be home to more than 30 additional businesses, including a Black History Month Pop-up Shop.

As we celebrate Black History Month, let us honor the legacy of resilience and entrepreneurship within our community by supporting black-owned businesses at The Broadway Market. Their success is our success, and by uplifting these businesses, we enrich the entire fabric of our city.
-Byron Brown, Mayor of Buffalo, New York

All sorts of vendors will be available to support and shop with. In addition to the shopping, there will be live music every Saturday from different bands in Western New York. With more than 90,000 square feet of space, the Broadway Market will surely have something for everyone.

Western New York has so much to offer when it comes to Black History, you can find out more about here.
