Our Story


NEW YORK MAKERS Marketplace and Magazine handpicks and delivers goods made with passion and purpose and tells the inspiring stories of our state, its movers and makers. Through our travels and work with local communities, we strive to unearth goods that captivate and delight our shoppers and readers, while promoting sustainability and creative collaboration. 

We find the artists and creatives, the foodies and entertainers, the pioneers and entrepreneurs, who weave their unique New York state of mind into their products, endeavors and achievements. Our stories cover everything from notable products, restaurants and locavore-inspired recipes to outdoor and indoor events and activities, destinations for weekend getaways, honeymoons, vacations or perhaps a move, and behind-the-scenes tales of folks in and from the state.

Co-founded by Silda Wall Spitzer, former First Lady of New York State, NewYorkMakers.com is the first-of-its-kind statewide digital marketplace and magazine offering New Yorkers and those living elsewhere the opportunity to visit, explore, and partake of New York’s bounty.
