Last year sadly, a popular Orange County Artisan Market Closed its doors after opening during the COVID pandemic in August of 2020. Emporium Square Artisan Market in Middletown was home to nearly 50 small businesses, and just couldn't seem to recover from the pandemic, so they shut down the business. A new artisan market is now coming to the Hudson Valley area bringing hope to small businesses.

Lo'Kel-Li Artisan Market took to social media recently to announce that the grand opening of the new location at the Poughkeepsie Galleria will be opening over Memorial Day Weekend.
