Broadway Market Celebrates Polish Christmas Wigilia Traditions
Regardless of our cultural background or religious beliefs, all of us have cherished food traditions that are the center of our holiday celebrations.  To honor those customs and to showcase the old-world quality of Buffalo's best-loved foods, the Broadway Market will be presenting a public cooking demonstration on Saturday, December 8 and 15 featuring the traditional Polish meal (Wigilia) served on Christmas Eve.

The tasting includes samples of a selection of Wigilia foods, including mushroom soup, pierogi and the traditional Christmas wafers (oplatek). The wafers will be available for individual purchase.

Wigilia (pronounced: "vyg-ILY-uh"), comes from the Latin word vigilare, "to watch", and means literally Eve.  This meatless meal is also known as the vigil, as Catholics await the birth of Christ.   Whether you would like to reconnect with your heritage, or want to learn about a custom that is not part of your familys tradition, the Broadway Market has been an important part of holiday meals for generations in our community.

Cooking demonstartion conducted by Sandy Starks. Father Anzelm Chalupka from Corpus Christi Church will do a blessing of the Christmas wafers.
