Mayor Brown Announces the Selection of a Long-Standing WNY Business as Downtown's Newest Market

201 Ellicott Announcement March 2019

BUFFALO, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown, joined by Braymiller Market Owner Stuart Green and Ciminelli

Real Estate Corp. President and CEO Paul F. Ciminelli, announced that Braymiller Market, an historic

Hamburg market known for fresh produce, specialty foods, and seasonal plants, plans to open a new store

as part of the 201 Ellicott Project. The fresh-food market is a key component of Mayor Brown’s affordable

housing project planned for Ellicott Street, between the NFTA bus station and the downtown library.

Mayor Brown stated, “Today, we’re ready to welcome a wonderful fresh-food market with over 70 years of

experience to downtown Buffalo, giving residents a new choice to buy quality food in an urban environment.

Every community that is economically and financially sustainable has choices — choices in housing, choices

in grocery stores, choices of good jobs. The addition of Braymiller Market, bringing fresh produce and

specialty foods to our urban shoppers, is one more positive piece in our continued efforts to build an even

more equitable, sustainable and financial platform for Buffalo.”

Mayor Brown announced that Braymiller Market will create an estimated 65 job opportunities for city

residents, and give residents and visitors a new choice to buy fresh produce and specialty food in an urban

environment. Stuart Green recently signed a letter of intent with Ciminelli Development to build, and

ultimately own and operate, the fresh-food market in Buffalo.

“Our formula for success, our ‘secret sauce,’ is retail and wholesale offerings of the freshest foods,” said

Green. “We offer our customers core grocery items to accompany our vast variety of produce that we source

seasonally from local farms. In addition, we prepare our own soups, salads, meals and sandwiches here in

our market with those perishable products.”

“This is a long-awaited addition to the downtown core, and an exciting one at that. Not only is Braymiller

Market a solid, long-standing Western New York business, it also brings a relationship-centric philosophy

that makes it a perfect fit for the City of Good Neighbors,” said Paul F. Ciminelli, president and CEO of

Ciminelli Real Estate. “Stuart Green and his team are emphatic about understanding customers’ needs,

to ensure that the market continually surpasses expectations through quality products and service.
