The East Aurora Farmer’s Market, located in the Aurora Village Shopping Center in East Aurora, New York, has been providing locally grown and produced products to the Western New York area since 1978. Open Wednesday and Saturday, 7am – 1pm, from the first Saturday in May until the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
Opening day was July 29, 1978 on Riley Street near the Railroad Station. There were 16 vendors in attendance. Hours were 8am till noon. In 1986 Dunk Hill decided to sell the property. After zoning approval by the Town Board, the Market relocated to the East Aurora Village Plaza on Grey Street The Market has operated at this location to the present time. In July of 1988, the hours were extended on Saturday, from 7am – 1pm and Wednesdays from 7am – 1pm. At one time there were over one hundred members. Today we have about seventy members selling a wide variety of products all locally grown and produced by the vendors. Three of the original vendors are still members. Four started right after the opening. Six vendors have over 25 years and ten over 20 years.
Through it all — relocation, construction etc., the Market has remained strong and committed to being a vital part of the East Aurora community.
