The stadium, which was named professional field of the year in 2021, has seen a ton of upgrades since the Bisons last played a full season in front of their fans in 2019.  The Bison's parent club, the Toronto Blue Jays, pumped a bunch of money into the park that opened its doors for the first time back in 1988, so it was up to Major League standards while they played parts of their 2020 and 2021 seasons in Buffalo. New locker rooms for the team and a new building beyond the right-field fence which houses some swanky new batting cages are just a few notable additions.

And now, as the stadium is ready to welcome back bison's fans for a full season in 2022, we take a look at the food options that you will have when you get inside the gates.  Aside from the usual ballpark fare of hotdogs, peanuts, and Cracker-Jacks, Sahlen field offers up a ton of food options that are uniquely Western New York.

Some of the WNY delicacies you can sample include:

- La Nova Pizza

- Original Pizza Logs

- Charlie The Butchers Roast Beef

- Nick Charlap's  Ice Cream

And you can wash it  all down with these local buffalo beverages:

- Consumers Beverages - Offering a selection of craft beers

- Southern Tier Brewing Company - Offering their own brews and wine.

- Buffalocal - Serving up local Buffalo brews.
