Take a stroll through the Village of Williamsville and you’ll discover Glen Park, a picturesque park just off Main Street with a lovely waterfall and scenic nature views. In the heart of the village is the Farmers’ Market at the Williamsville Mill. Every Saturday from mid-May through October you can buy farm fresh produce, baked goods, sausage, fresh cut flowers and more. On Main Street you’ll find an assortment of shops, salons and restaurants both for casual and fine dining. Music on Main is a summer event with live music throughout the village. East of Williamsville along Main Street enjoy free concerts at the Clarence Town Park or go next door to the Clarence Historical Museum where you can see a circa 1825 log cabin. The Clarence Hollow Farmers’ Market and the Great Pumpkin Farm are just a short distance from Antique World where a number of shops feature antiques and collectibles.
