Milton Market was founded in May 2019. We reside in the Cobble Court in Litchfield Center, Connecticut. We are a modern day general store with a focus on simple, clean, local, seasonal and sustainable. My goal for Milton Market was to create a shop that communicated my sense of home and appreciation for the beauty of everyday objects. I wanted to find special and unique products, to work with artists and artisans, and to seek out small brands whose values aligned with my own.
I spent 20+ years living in West Chelsea, New York City, working in the fashion industry as a buyer, merchant and in design management, for the most admired brands and with the most inspiring people. On weekends, I headed to the country where I had a weekend home in one of the county’s small, rural hamlets. This hamlet provided me with rest, respite, community and the sense of a slower, simpler time. Inevitably, I found myself wanting more slow and more simple. Three years ago, I made the move to full time resident of these beautiful northwest hills.
Our building, once home to the town blacksmith, lives in one of the most historic and well preserved towns in New England. It is now home to Milton Market. Stop by for a visit.
