Farmer’s Hardware in Saratoga Closed

0 Comments

If you had Farmer’s Hardware brunch on your Capital Region “Must-try” list, I have some bad news for you.

The owners of Farmer’s Hardware in Saratoga recently posted on their Facebook a long note about their closing. They were always known for their fresh ingredients and, specifically, their delicious brunch. The restaurant closed officially after service on January 23.

Farmer’s Hardware has been open for 5 years in a 100-year-old warehouse. It’s always been successful and then two life events changed the mindset of the owners, COVID-19 and the birth of their first child.

According to their Facebook post, “The crisis of the pandemic has forever changed the face of hospitality in too numerous ways to mention. In just the last two years we’ve had to completely reinvent our concept three times to adjust to the changing requirements of operating a restaurant during a pandemic. We have fought a gallant fight, but it has become impossible for us to provide the service and experience we always intended our guests to have. Most importantly, it has become impossible to properly balance work-life and family-life. And so, we have come to the incredibly difficult decision to exit the restaurant industry and sell the business.”

If you’re interested in the space, it is currently for sale.
