Sutton’s Marketplace in Queensbury has undergone a significant change! Here’s what you’ll find at the longtime fixture on Route 9.
The Sutton family decided to shift the focus of Sutton’s Marketplace from gifts to food – local, farm-to-table food, to be exact.
Donna Sutton, who established the business with her late husband, Steve, had previously announced plans to sell the property and retire, but the family decided to reshape Sutton’s instead.
“It’s going to be focused on using locally sourced ingredients and all this area has to offer,” Jane Sutton told The Post Star; Jane Sutton is Donna Sutton’s daughter.
The gift shop on the first floor of the building has been turned into a 93-seat restaurant called Farmstead Flatbread that is open from 11am to 9pm every day. The restaurant sells chicken wings, salads, and flatbread pizzas straight from a wood-fired brick flatbread oven.
A wooden map is displayed on the wall to show where the farms are located that contributed ingredients to the menu.
The restaurant also offers 20 regional craft beers on tap, so guests can enjoy local beverages as well as local food!
The longtime cafe in front the restaurant is still open for breakfast and lunch. And for those of us who loved the gifts offered, there will still be a gift shop, just a smaller one, which will be located on the second floor along with a banquet room – this is expected to open in the spring.
The idea behind the new focus of Sutton’s is to ensure it isn’t heavily relying on tourism, but instead will be a year-round business.
