BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — After a tough Easter season at the Broadway market due to COVID-19, Kissed by the Sun Spices founder Richard Fickhesen decided to help some of those businesses.

"We took it upon ourselves to start working with some of the local Western New York food makers to essentially sell their products through our website," Fickhesen said.

He created Buffalo Food Makers United, an online farmers market offering all Western New York based products.

"We have over twenty products from cheese to Pierogi to pickles to mustard," Fickhesen said. "You name it."

Fickhesen has plans to open a store front and offer the Western New York made products there.

The products can be shipped all over the country.

And for a local business, they can sign up to have their products offered on Buffalo Food Makers United as well.

All can be done from the Kissed By The Sun Spices website here.
