Our Story

New York Makers, founded in 2012, is the online Marketplace and Magazine where every product has a New York story.

Our Marketplace offers a curated selection of unique, mindfully-designed items, from handcrafted to high-tech, created across New York State.

Our Magazine features inspiring personal stories of local talent offering their insights and resources, travel guides, New York living, creative guest content, DIY projects, and ideas that shape who New Yorkers are and where they are going. Each month, we explore a different "New York State of Mind" theme.

Co-founded by Silda Wall Spitzer, former First Lady of New York State, to promote local sustainability and statewide connectivity, New York Makers is first-of-its-kind.
