WEDI’s West Side Bazaar is a small business incubator where aspiring entrepreneurs incubate business concepts and learn the fundamentals of running a business. Located at 1432 Niagara Street on Buffalo's West Side, it is also a community gathering space where people of all races, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds share a love of delicious food and unique products.

There is a food retail booth on the first floor with additional booths for pop-up events and a bar that serves beer and wine. On the second floor, there are 2 professional offices (homes to a culinary bookstore and mental health counselors), The Gathering Space, a Learning Lab, a commissary kitchen,  a wellness room for nursing moms, and additional seating.
