Discover the latest way to shop local! The Schenectady Trading Company is a marketplace to showcase goods produced within Schenectady County, including handmade and manufactured items, a variety of food and beverage products, novelties, and seasonal produce from local farms. It is the go-to place for Schenectady souvenirs, local gift basket items, and college merchandise. In the store, shoppers will encounter a variety of themes that reflect and celebrate Schenectady's history. Have a cup of their excellent fair-trade organic coffee, roasted right in Schenectady, or grab something from their refrigerated and frozen sections. There is a variety of artwork, books, and music albums representing local talent and a visitor's info rack for details on local attractions and events. Their "Parlor" meeting space is warm and inviting and perfect for small groups like book clubs, knitting groups, team meetings, crafting workshops, etc. or for art receptions, meetups and informal gatherings. In warmer weather, they will offer pop-up entertainment and events on our expansive front patio. Look out for their upcoming e-commerce site so that geography won't limit the ways that people can support this blossoming city. Relax, browse, or just pop in to their convenient location on lower Union Street downtown. Parking is available on the corner lot of Barrett and Union, or at meters in front of the store. They can't wait to meet you and show you what the community has created!
