Built in 1892, a Preserved Shopping Arcade

Built in 1892, the Market Arcade’s beautiful, Neo-Classical styles and indoor shopping center stood as testaments to civilized, urban life. Long before the 20th-century shopping mall was even thought of, the Market Arcade gave civilians a chance to relax and shop without having to bear the brunt of Buffalo’s harsh weather. It became known as the “belly of Buffalo” for a reason, and it continues to be a vital community space in downtown Buffalo to this day.
