West Side Bazaar opening Fall 2023
WEDI’s West Side Bazaar is a small business incubator where aspiring entrepreneurs incubate business concepts and learn the fundamentals of running a business. It is also a community gathering space where people of all races, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds share a love of delicious food and unique products. On the morning of September 20, our West Side Bazaar on Grant Street suffered a horrific fire that caused it to close. We're thankful no one was at the Bazaar when the fire broke out and no one was hurt. We are grateful for the outpouring of community love and support we have received since it happened. Your support has been instrumental as we continue to navigate the aftermath of this traumatic event. WEDI opened Downtown Bazaar by WEDI to provide a space for many of the displaced entrepreneurs after the fire. Downtown Bazaar by WEDI is open Tuesday-Thursday from 8 am - 8 pm and Friday and Saturday from 11 am - 8 pm at 617 Main Street in Buffalo, next to the historic Market Arcade.
WEDI's new West Side Bazaar is located at 1432 Niagara Street and will open in Fall 2023. WEDI is now accepting applications from individuals who wish to start their business in WEDI's new West Side Bazaar. To apply, please click here.
