Shop Local, Support Local
Based in New York's Capital Region, Make It Up State is a business development organization that is dedicated to supporting small businesses, promoting economic development, and reviving and preserving the arts, crafts, and makers movements through educational opportunities and events. After hosting an 8-week winter inaugural season indoors at the former Lansingburgh Price Chopper in Troy, Make It Up State has expanded and started new seasonal marketplaces.
Their markets feature a rotating lineup of over 50 local and regional vendors, which means you'll see new products and businesses every week. Some vendors are experienced, and others are new and spreading the word about their unique products. Stop by and find local cuisine and beverages, goods and gifts, fine art, and more.
