The question everyone's been asking. What is the Buffalo Indie Market?

If you haven't stopped at Pearl Street Grill and Brewery on the second Sunday of the month yet, what are you waiting for? The Buffalo Indie Market also known as BIM is Buffalo's first and only monthly indoor artist market currently hosted at Pearl Street Grill and Brewery in Downtown Buffalo. (Click Here for Directions) The market is devoted to bringing regular awareness to the highly talented artists and designers of Buffalo and WNY. We hope to encourage local shopping while strengthening the local artist community. BIM brings high quality and unique designer products to Buffalo consumers in a fun and inviting atmosphere. Only at Buffalo Indie Market can you shop and enjoy great live, local music every month, rain, SNOW (Of course it's Buffalo) or shine. Additional attractions are the great food and drinks served at Pearl Street Grill, a great view of the city and waterfront, and most important bringing business to our local artists/designers to benefit our local economy. Most Buffalonian's want to see our Queen City come back bigger and better than ever. BIM is just one more step in the right direction of achieving that goal.
On Sunday December 14th, on the 2nd and 3rd floors at Pearl Street Grill and Brewery, BIM will celebrate the Holidays and it's 8th show! Stop by from 12PM to 5PM to finish up your holiday shopping with a selection of 40+ local artists and designers. (Click here for a list of participating artists and links to their sites) Also enjoy great music from local musical guests Brian Wheat, The Wet Bandits, Kilissa Cissoko, Project ii and Spanning Time.

Make your own gift at one of our Interactive Artist Workshops from 1PM to 3PM: Our Pottery Wheel Workshop from Buffalo Plaid Pottery, Weaving Workshop from Wash My Cloth and a Rock Painting Workshop by LanRocks.
