You can support our farmers and PFC’s mission by purchasing our produce in several ways
CSA Vegetable Subscription
The harvest season in WNY is one to be savored. Its short duration makes it all the more important to soak in and enjoy.

PFC Farmers Market
The PFC Farmers Market is driven by our farmers to meet the needs of their communities in their communities.
The market is located at the M&T Bank parking lot, 130 Grant Street, in the heart of Buffalo’s West Side, and operates from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays from July through October. At the market, customers can browse a wide range of seasonal produce, including unique, culturally-important vegetables, from PFC’s diverse farming communities.
The PFC Farmers Market provides a location for PFC farmers to sell their niche, traditional crops—including African maize, amaranth, roselle, hot peppers, and African and Asian eggplants. As part of a USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program grant, PFC farmers receive training and technical assistance to promote and sell their produce to historically under-resourced communities in Western New York. This training involves a “learn, do, teach” approach. PFC farmers will develop the skills required to successfully market their produce directly to consumers. The PFC Farmers Market will support a more robust food system that promotes health and equity by expanding access to healthy and affordable foods, increasing access to culturally relevant foods, and supporting BIPOC farmers in serving local food apartheid communities.
Market Stand at the Farm
PFC’s on-farm market stand, located at 5701 Burton Road in Orchard Park, offers the wider community surrounding the farm the opportunity to shop an assortment of fresh African, Asian, and American vegetables and fresh-cut flowers weekly from late June through October.
Coming to the market provides the opportunity for people to directly experience the farm and see where and how the produce is grown. Sales from the market stand are invested back into PFC to support the continuation and growth of our programs.
PFC offers sales to restaurants, co-ops, grocery stores and other wholesale outlets. Interested in purchasing PFC’s unique produce wholesale? Contact PFC’s Markets Manager Hamadi Ali at [email protected].
