Eat Drink Local Week, Day 6: Eat Local at Globe Market

In Uncategorized on June 27, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Globe Market has been a mainstay on the Elmwood strip for several years. Consistently serving up fresh, hot soups, deliciously creative salads and more to a hungry lunchtime crowd.  Whether if you want to dine-in, take-out or need catering services, Globe offers it all!

But there is a lot that happens behind the scenes too that makes Globe special. Lisa Hennig, co-owner, instituted a commercial kitchen composting program a few years ago, one of the first in the area. They also grow their own ingredients such as herbs and peppers, while sourcing other fresh ingredients from local growers as they become available.  A commitment they never waver from.

Recently, Globe took their staff to First Light Farm & Creamery to attend one of their weekend cheese-making workshops. The artisan cheese movement is starting to take hold in Western New York and Globe wants to be a part of it. Hoping to make in-house cheeses like ricotta and mozzarella, Globe also sells First Light’s cheeses in the store. This investment in their staff and business is another example of their commitment to the local food movement and the local economy.

Globe currently has two locations; 768 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo and 298 Main Street, Buffalo and is looking to open its third location soon at 1416 Hertel Avenue, Buffalo.
