A Creator’s Marketplace Celebrating Today’s Artisan Spirit


Mark Lane Properties will be kicking off 2021 early with the unveiling of a new kind of marketplace inside the newly renovated New York Wire Works building. Provided there are no state COVID restrictions to prevent such opening, The York Merchant will officially open its doors to the public on December 11th, 2020. The York Merchant will feature local artisans, craftsmen, and makers of all kinds. Unlike traditional markets, The York Merchant will be renting booth space to vendors, and will be taking care of virtually all of their business needs — from marketing and selling their products, to handling the paperwork and accounting. The vendor simply has to maintain the inventory. The York Merchant is co-managed by George and Trudi Zimmerman. George is also the owner and founder of CREATIONS, by George, where he specializes in industrial/urban decor custom work, and restoration. George and Trudi have been immersed in the artisan marketplace realm since 2016. Being involved in many marketplaces throughout the years, George began to see a need for a more streamlined, easy process for vendors. Instead of needing to always be on the move and constantly spending money on various booths, canopies, and marketing for each individual show, he realized how much easier it would be for a vendor to simply rent booth space, fill it with their products, and let the rest be handled for them. At The York Merchant, everything will be taken care of for the vendor, making it a place where they can lay roots, feel stable and secure, and pursue their creative passions more freely. The York Merchant consists of 10,000 square feet of space on the first floor of the New York Wire Works building, right in the heart of downtown York, PA. This historic complex is owned by Mark Lane Properties, who also owns three other buildings in the cities of Philadelphia and Coatesville. Mark Lane Properties will be turning the rest of the 215,000 square foot complex into a mix of artist, retail, and commercial spaces. To learn more about The York Merchant, potential vendors and shoppers are encouraged to visit the website at www.theyorkmerchant.com, or stop in during business hours to their location inside the New York Wire Works building at 441 E. Market St. in York, PA.
