West Side Bazaar

West Side Bazaar

West Side Bazaar is a non-profit 501(c)3 business incubator and international marketplace located on the West Side of Buffalo, NY. Currently home to 15 unique businesses, West Side Bazaar is operated by the Westminster Economic Development Initiative, or WEDI.

West Side Bazaar

At West Side Bazaar our goal is to strengthen our community by helping prospective entrepreneurs open their own businesses. Our clients come from a wide array of backgrounds with differing levels of experience. While operating in the Bazaar, businesses have a chance to work with WEDI staff, volunteer business mentors, and each other to learn about starting, operating, and growing their business in Western New York. Our goal is to see our businesses move out of West Side Bazaar and open a stand alone business in our neighborhood, empowering our entrepreneurs to become successful and community-minded business owners in the communities in which they reside, with a specific focus on the West Side of Buffalo. 

Our current business owners come from 8 different countries, representing 13 different ethnicities and speaking over 20 languages. 93% of our businesses are refugee-owned, and 73% are owned by women.
