The Farm Market
The Baddings have been farming in the north-Buffalo community for 30 years, however, Badding Bros Farm Market has not always been the business you see today. Arlene Badding began selling extra crops from her vegetable garden in the 1970s to provide fresh produce to her eight children and the surrounding community. What began as a simple hobby and college tuition financing quickly became a growing career passion for Arlene's son, Mike Badding. Through hard-work and long hours, Mike and family have turned a simple roadside farm stand into a vibrant, family-owned farm market.
Keeping with their roots, the market strives to only offer local produce. Homegrown produce, whether it be from the Badding's fields or from neighboring farmers, begins in June with Asparagus, and ends in Winter with Apples and Squash. Check for "homegrown" on market signage signifying the produce comes from Erie or Niagara county. The market also offers a variety of specialty items from local artisans such as honey, maple syrup, and jellies.
To keep fresh produce on your table all year round, talk to one of the Baddings about canning. The market offers a wide array of canning necessities, but most importantly, the knowledge and experience to help you get started, or tips to spice up your recipes. You can find select crops by the half and full bushel for your canning and freezing convenience. Please call ahead (716-636-7824) for ordering and easy pick-up.
