Sales, Wreaths by Barb, Eddie Ryan’s Restaurant, Collins Craft Work, Bathfitters, Retro Buffalo, and Tupperware.

Some of the long time vendors have become fixtures at the Market, like Crusciki Bakery.

“We will have our Easter breads, our placek, our Cruscikis.Then of course, you can find  the butter lambs and all the familiar sausages,” Ania Gurnari, owner of Crusciki Bakery, said. “It’s such a fun time of the year for us. We look forward to it every year, it’s bigger and better.”

The Broadway Market began in the late 1800’s and moved into it;s current location at Broadway and Fillmore in the 1950’s. This year, the City invested $200,000 in structural improvements and built a new senior citizens center on site.
