Farmers & Artisans Offering Fruit, Vegetable and Flower Shares Through Local Farms

Farmers & Artisans, a unique Williamsville store moving soon to Snyder, offers a delicious mix of local produce, bakery items, meats and farm market products. And, they are now offering sign-up for their popular vegetable, fruit and flower shares for a second consecutive growing season.

These shares are similar to traditional Community Supported Agriculture programs, with consumers subscribing to a weekly portion of fresh and local produce and flowers throughout the summer and fall seasons. It’s a great way to support Western New York farms, enjoy fresh and delicious produce, and save time and money. Customers may sign up for one, two or all three shares, and discounts are available when signing up for multiple shares.
