Troy Maker’s Market

Saturdays in Troy are for shopping the local Maker’s Market, a vendor affair filled with homemade handicrafts like jewelry, art, decor, and curios you won’t find anywhere else. All vendors are local artisans that have been carefully vetted to sell at the market. Pick up a gift for a loved one or grab a few unique finds for yourself.
