On a recent visit to the Broadway Market yielded two pleasant surprises: Gladys’s Nook and Marge’s Soul Food!
Gladys’s Nook, with its attractive display of scrubs and apparel, is one of the first businesses you see when you enter the Market. The shop’s personable young proprietor, Robyn Miller, is an RN who has been in nursing for 20 years! She said she opened her business to provide healthcare workers quality uniforms at affordable prices. Scrubs start at $20 a set or $40 for designer styles. Individual tops or pants start at just $10. The shop , which she named after her grandmother, is open daily and even offers home delivery on Sundays! Running her business, (which she opened during the pandemic!), working as a nurse (independent) and going to school (majoring in Psychology at UB), Robyn is an entrepreneur on a mission!

Marge’s Soul Food has that down home taste . Margie Hawkins, proprietor, has been in the Broadway Market for some 20 years. The long time cook for the former McKenzie’s, she’s been the owner of Marge’s Soul Food for the past four years. Proud of her Southern roots, Margie serves breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring all the traditional deliciously prepared soul food dishes and deserts and the price is right! So whether you’re in the Market or in the area, Marge’s is conveniently located , where she’s always serving food for the soul!(716-322-1748).
