Shop For A Cause During Our International Market Week!

By October 2, 2020September 28th, 2023No Comments

Join us the week of October 12th-18th as we team up with 10 local immigrant-run businesses to continue our Buffalo Without Borders Marketplace! Although we can’t come together all in one night, we can still celebrate immigrant and refugee businesses and the great impact they have on our city’s culture and economy!

Instead of an in-person market, this event will span the entire week giving you more time to find those perfect holiday gifts! Any purchase made during this week that mentions the International Institute of Buffalo or Buffalo Without Borders will be counted towards the 10% sales donation to the Institute, which supports our services and clients. Our International Market Week is the perfect time to get your holiday shopping done early while also shopping local for a cause.

*Sales include those purchased in store and online, but don’t forget to mention us!
