History of Mrs. Frances Nash
The program is named after Frances Nash, wife of Rev. J. Edward Nash. After attending various health lectures, Mrs. Nash developed an interest in nutrition and became an advocate for healthy eating. She became knowledgeable about vitamins, food-groups, proteins, and starches. In the 1940s, Mrs. Nash developed a large vegetable garden in the back of her home at 36 Potter Street. For many years this garden supplied the neighborhood and the Nash’s friends with organically grown foods.
Support Mrs. Frances Nash's Garden Basket
The new market aims to spur economic and community development by promoting local production of agriculture while addressing the health issues that stem from lack of healthy food options on the historic East Side of Buffalo. Our market is scheduled to take place every Tuesday from 3 PM - 6 PM from June - October in the parking lot at 136 Broadway Ave.
Help support our vendors and customers when you donate today. All donations go to creating a thriving and inclusive farmers market. Your donation will be used to help reduce the cost of the products being sold, offer educational opportunities to our visitors, and ensure our market is a success!
Sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses looking to partner with us as we start our new farmers market. By sponsoring Mrs. Frances Nash's Garden Basket, your organization has the opportunity to help support both our local farmers and the customers we are serving. Sponsorships support the distribution of vouchers to our customers to help reduce the cost of the products and educational programming related to healthy eating.
