  • ADVOCACY ALERT from PBN! On October 25, 2022, the Buffalo Common Council's Committee on Legislation will hold a public hearing on the local landmark application for the Clinton-Bailey Farmers Market. Originally known as the Niagara Frontier Growers Co-operative Market, it was constructed in 1930-1931 and has served an important role as a food hub on the city's East Side ever since. As detailed in the full nomination, the Clinton-Bailey Farmers Market is an excellent example of an early twentieth century market complex, featuring six market stalls and an administration building. The latter is an excellent example of the Art Deco style applied to a small-scale commercial building.

In December 2021, the market's owners proposed demolition of the administration building. In response, both the Preservation Board and Preservation Buffalo Niagara provided the owners with information on funding resources, like our East Side Commercial Building Stabilization Fund, that would help them rehabilitate the building for continued use, rather than demolishing it. The landmark application, submitted by Councilmember Mitch Nowakowski, is another step to ensure the protection of the site into the future.
