The Johnny Shoppes Story
For years before The Shoppes at Johnny Appleseed
opened, the owners (Erica & Patrick Gilmore) envisioned
ways for a like-minded community to market their unique
blend of art, function, food and décor.
Finally, in early 2017 they began a journey to take
Johnny Appleseed in a new direction.
Opening in June of 2017 with only four confirmed vendors: Alexandra’s Attic, Decorative Edge, Room To Improve
and Patrick Gilmore Original Live Edge Furniture,
the wheels began to turn.
With this handful of hopeful believers, in one short year they transformed the space left barren for three years after the
closure of the furniture store– into what is now
The Shoppes at Johnny Appleseed.
The store is now home to over 50 vendors, in one expansive space!
Owners Erica and Patrick Gilmore have also redesigned the kitchen into a quaint and inviting cafe serving lunch and desserts every Saturday and Sunday. In October 2018, The Apple Kitchen received a NYS liquor license and now serves a variety of New York State craft brews and their own signature wine, Orchard Ridge.
Our store is wheelchair accessible and open 5 days a week.
Natural Beauty Awaits...
We are a family run business that values the beauty of the outdoors. We are eager to share our open spaces with those who share our interest. See below for more info on our perimeter trail.
The perimeter of our 88 acres, as seen drawn in red on this aerial view photo, is open and maintained for visitors to explore
It's a moderate/easy hike on level ground and mowed for ease of motion. The total distance is just under one mile. The trail winds around
our backyard, up a hill to a great view of the neighboring valleys, and down around the store and pond, back to the road.
Currently we let Spruce Valley Stables use it for trail rides and neighbors come to walk their dogs on a leash.
Stop in the store and ask permission, we will gladly give you further details.
