If there was ever a time for a community peace market, this would be it. As the community tries to recover from the horrific tragedy that has rocked the East Side, dozens of people are coming together in solidarity. These people don’t sit idly by and let a single evil person tear our city apart. Instead, they create a host of social events that aim to kick-start the healing process.
Later today, Wednesday, May 18, BFLO Worm Works and Massachusetts Avenue Project (MAP) will host The Community Peace Market – an event founded on the idea that kindness and peace will prevail in the city of good neighbors.
“We are united in the face of hatred in Buffalo. We are #buffalostrong. Peace Market is a large combined group of businessmen and women, regional health care organizations, food pantries, and urban farms and gardens that will provide the community with food, products, and services FREE. The market will take place every Wednesday from May 15 to June. 8 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) in the Faithful Stones Church parking lot (corner of Utica and Jefferson Avenues). – The Community Peace Market
