About Milton Market…
Milton Market is home to everyday necessities and one-of-a-kind originals. With a focus on simple, clean, local, artisanal, seasonal and sustainable. We hope you’ll find the magic in the mix at Milton Market.
Our monthly series Meet the Makers series was born of our respect for artists, artisans and craftspeople and their work. One of the guiding principles of the store is not only supporting those artists but highlighting their talents, their craft and their process. Litchfield County is an area that is so rich with craftspeople and there is so much inspiration to be found right outside our door… we love having the opportunity to find products that are unique, exclusive and highlight the heritage of the area.
For over 20 years I lived in New York, 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 - Milton. 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. Five years ago, I made the move to full time resident of these beautiful northwest hills. And three years ago, after years of list making and gathering of inspiration, I brought to reality the musings of my past - a lifestyle shop for our town. One that communicated my sense of home and appreciation for the beauty of everyday objects. I still love finding special and unique products, working with artists and artisans, and seeking out small brands whose values aligned with my own.
Where you’ll find us…
Milton Market is tucked behind the corners of West Street and South Street, in the historic Cobble Court in Litchfield, Connecticut. Cobble Court is a special gem, a secret find and a slice out of another time. Follow the cobblestones into Cobble Court, where you’ll find the town’s carriage house next to our building, the blacksmith shop. Since 2019, that blacksmith shop is home to Milton Market.
