Vendors will include Painted Meadows Farm, Farmthisway, Prudom Farms, Desi’s Produce, Hens Honey Bee Farm, Kate’s Country Cousins, Robbins Nest Country Market, Public Espresso + Coffee, KupKates, Duke’s Donuts, Biscotti for Everybotti, Buffalo Cookie Company, Chateau Buffalo Cider House & Winery, John Angelo Photography, Buffalo Adore, I Do Weddings Florist and Alpine Made.

The market will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays through September. South Council Member Christopher P. Scanlon said he hopes it will increase the availability of local produce, support small businesses and show off the beauty of Cazenovia Park.

The market is organized by Scanlon and the Greater South Buffalo Chamber of Commerce.

This week:

• The Council’s Community Development Committee meets at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers, where it will discuss a proposed change to parking regulations around the McKinley Monument in Niagara Square. The interior of the square, which is paved with bricks, is sometimes used to park cars that require quick access to City Hall and the Robert H. Jackson Courthouse. Council President Darius G. Pridgen is proposing that only permitted vehicles – such as those used by members of the news media, by gardeners who tend to the square and those related to special events – be allowed to park there.

• The Council’s Legislation Committee meets at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers and will discuss a proposed city ordinance governing cats that roam freely but have become socialized to people. The ordinance would encourage efforts to trap, neuter, vaccinate and return cats to their environment.

• The Buffalo Fiscal Stability Authority, the city’s control board, will meet at 2 p.m. Thursday in the first-floor conference room of the Market Arcade complex at 617 Main St. The board will review a labor contract between the school district and cook managers, which covers about 30 people.
