About the Holiday Market

The Fort Orange General Store will celebrate its inaugural holiday season with a Holiday Market in The Arcade Building (488 Broadway) and the Fort Orange General Store (412 Broadway) in downtown Albany.

The Holiday Market will kick off the same evening as Albany City Hall's Tree Lighting & Open House on Thursday, November 30th. The market will feature 20 vendors, rotating each week, selling locally made and sourced goods. There will also be live entertainment, art exhibits, restaurant promotions, and the Fort Orange General Store will be hosting drop-in workshops.

Adjoining businesses in the Arcade Building - Stacks Espresso Bar, Albany Center Gallery, and Bombshell Hair & Beauty Studio - will be open with specials, art exhibits, and great coffee and snacks.
