Locally owned, handmade, and exceptional

Talk about options! In Saranac Lake, we celebrate local artisans, independent retailers, and friendly service. In our shops downtown and throughout the village, you'll find everything you didn't know you needed, from books to board games, paintings to pottery. With so many unique items, your holiday shopping will be extra special this year. Main Street is also the location of The Village Mercantile, the only community-owned-and-operated department store in New York state!

While you're shopping, don't forget to refuel with a hot drink and a sweet treat from one of our local hotspots!
