Batavia Boardwalk Shops

The Batavia Boardwalk Shops are designed to attract small businesses, create more retail shopping, and bring people into Downtown Batavia for both this unique destination and the rest of our downtown.

This program offers an opportunity to sell products and services of interest to patrons. Vendors located in the shops will be exposed to traffic from the Batavia Farmers’ Market, Second Fridays, and all other events held downtown. There will also be many promotions coming out of both Batavia MainStreet and the City of Batavia to attract patrons to the Boardwalk Shops.

Vendor applicants with additional questions can contact:
