Road to West Side Bazaar
On the morning of September 20, our West Side Bazaar on Grant Street suffered a horrific fire that caused it to close. We're thankful no one was at the Bazaar when the fire broke out and no one was hurt. We are grateful for the outpouring of community love and support we have received since it happened. Your support in all ways is appreciated as we navigate the aftermath of this traumatic event.
To make a contribution to help our West Side Bazaar entrepreneurs, please donate here.
We are assessing and working with our small business owners to establish what they need to recover and reopen. Their businesses are vital to their families' economic security and to the cultural life of our city. The new West Side Bazaar at 1432 Niagara Street will not be open until fall 2023. Immediately, we are looking for below-market-rate commercial kitchen and retail space for our current Bazaar businesses. Financial donations to WEDI are gratefully accepted as we work with our businesses to come back better than ever.
