  • Be at two places at once. We offer an opportunity for your product to be in brick and mortar space while you fill online orders or are selling at market events.

  • Brand exposure. Hudson River Exchange showcases the products and stories of Makers + Collectors on our social media and newsletter.

  • Compelling presentation. Visually merchandised by Hudson River Exchange and placed alongside great makers + collectors.

  • Customer engagement. The internet is great but reach a wider audience with experiential encounters with your product. It also gives you a reason to reach out to existing customers to come check out what you’ve been working on.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR:

The pop ups are curated by Hudson River Exchange to showcase a diverse group of  makers + collectors. 

  • Innovative and unique. We look for expertly crafted handmade goods with unique and innovative design and special vintage collections of high quality objects. For food, we look for vendors that strive to serve beautifully presented or packaged using well-sourced ingredients.

  • Diversity of products at the Marketplace. We accept a limited amount of vendors from each category. Applicants are not limited to listed categories if application submitted demonstrates a strong connection to the values of the event. Please contact us at info@hudsonriverexchange.com if you do not feel you fit in a category and we will help direct you.

  • A clear point of view demonstrated through a cohesive product line. We are looking for consistency within a line of products. We prefer vendors that have specialized in a product but offer a variety within that genre.
