Press Pass: Farmers Markets, Food Fests and More

The June issue of Buffalo Spree is all about celebrating the start of summer.  Farmers markets are more plentiful and popular here than they’ve ever been.  Editor Elizabeth Licata joins WBFO's Mark Scott on this week's Press Pass to find out why.

The June issue of Buffalo Spree also has a calendar of food festivals.  Now, we’re all familiar with the Taste of Buffalo and the Italian Heritage Festival to name two of the more prominent ones.  But Mark asks Elizabeth if there is a particular festival that she would recommend checking out.

Elizabeth also wrote an article about changes involving what’s been known as Garden Walk Buffalo.  She'll touch on that in our conversation, including the fact that more people visit gardens each year than Disneyworld and Disneyland combined.

On another topic, Elizabeth reviewed an exhibit now on display at the BT&C Gallery featuring the works of Lawrence Brose.  She describes the exhibit as Brose’s “triumphant return” now that his court battle is finally behind him over what his attorney argued was as an unwarranted federal prosecution on child pornography charges. 

Finally, Buffalo Spree reveals its Best of Western New York winners with a big party June 25 at the Shea’s Performing Arts Center.  Listen to find out more about what's planned that night.
