What is The Mercantile?

A curated retail marketplace located in the renovated historical Fitzgerald Building in Downtown Schenectady. It is The Mercantile's desire to celebrate our local makers and also offer one of kind products and goods to the community.

The Merc is a unique opportunity for makers to sell their goods and talents in a diverse, creative atmosphere. Our makers will have the opportunity to build their brand and realize their dreams of owning their own business.
