This area is great. I would recommend staying here over anywhere else in buffalo. You can walk around and get everything you need-cafes, restaurants, shopping, good vibes and farmers markets-it has it all!

A very artsy suburb of Buffalo. Nice little restaurants, Farmer's Market on Saturdays, and a number of shops to go in and check out. Town also seems very dog friendly, as stores have treats and bowls of water set out for canine visitors.

We toured the Elmwood Village one sunny Spring like Sunday in March, lots of snow still there but we were in sweaters. The shops are terrific. Lots of local goods and great restaurants. Lexington food co-op is a must stop. Lots of local goods and great take out food. Neat consignment shop across the street. Picked up a Brooks Brother's... More

The stores were fun and different. We went on a Monday, so some stores were closed. Check out stores online (google Elmwood Village and the stores are on their website with links to click and see what goods they sell) ahead of time if your short on time or if you don't want all the walking. Glad we visited. Worth... More

We then walked around the neighborhood and just took I the sights ( there was also a pride celebration going on so the area was busy and... More

Elmwood Village is a cool section of Buffalo, with a small Farmer's Market held there during Spring and Summer Saturdays. It is worth the visit to stroll through the blocks long park between the streets and to see the many local shops, restaurants and businesses. Unfortunately not many of them were actually open on Saturday mornings, so shopping here will... More

The strip of Elmwood Village is full of the most eclectic shops you can ever imagine. Some of the best eateries and coffee shops on the planet (SPOT COFFEE) and the best people watching all around. Take a stroll during the summer and make a stop on Saturday at the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmer's Market. You won't be disappointed.
