Going to Buffalo's West Side Bazaar is like taking a journey out of the country. The bazaar is a hub of small businesses. The food there is as diverse as it is rare. You'll hear Burmese, English, Hindi, Urdu, Thai, Amharic and more languages as you walk through the West Side Market. You'll be able to try food from Burma, Ethiopia, Thailand and more and shop for items from Africa, Burma, Nepal and more.

You can also shop until you drop.
