Great selection of gifts made in or associated with this area of New York State. Shares the building along the Erie Canal with the Waterfront Grill.

This is an indoor shopping area offering things that are made in the Mohawk Valley of Central NY. I learned a lot about the are just by looking around. This is where the Erie Canal Cruises departs from.

Had a wonderful luncheon for about 30 people. The food was fabulous, as well as the service. I highly recommend the Waterfront Grill.

Immaculate but ambitiously overpriced. Huge selection of gifts/souvenirs. If you want to find something to remember your visit, you should be able to find something here

When my daughters visited, we went to the Herkimer Diamond mines and swung down here to catch the cruise on the Canal. Almost lost them in the Gems Along the Mohawk store. They didn't want to leave!

This marketplace is located directly across from exit ramp. We were expecting more shops and variety so we were disappointed. They are several local vendor displays house in the building but it is crowded. Good for a quick stop and last minute gift.
