Perfect for Valentine’s Day this weekend, a new marketplace has opened in Lansingburgh in partnership with the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market.
Running every Sunday from February 7th to March 28th from 10:00am to 2:00pm will be The Marketplace in partnership with the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market to feature local businesses. The line-up for vendors already includes more than 50 local artisans and food vendors which will change up each week to keep it fresh.
“Some vendors are well-known in the local market community while others are new to the scene,” said Erin Pihlaja, co-owner and co-founder of Make It Up State and former executive director of the Downtown Troy BID. “Puckers Pickles, Bard and Baker Board Game Cafe, Good Day Honey, Collar City Candle, Saratoga Peanut Butter Company, Rare Form Brewing…we’ve got a lot of well known brands. And on the newer side we’ve got fine artists, handcrafted medicinal herbs, dried floral arrangements, and someone who self describes as ‘pop-culture inspired and subversive embroidery and cross stitch.’ It sounds cliche but there is something for everyone.”
Visit The Marketplace in the former Price Chopper in Lansingburgh (865 2nd Avenue, Troy) which is also the winter home for the Saturday Troy Waterfront Farmers Market.
Added to this new venture, the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market has also launched The Mural Project, featuring more than two dozen murals created by local artists. Sometimes the artists will be creating them live during the market. Stop in each week to catch a new piece.
