Thank you for your interest in joining the Genuine Adirondack community!

According to the Adirondack Council approximately 10 million people from all over the world visit the Adirondack region each year. While here, many of them, tired of the blizzard of plastic trinkets, seek out authentic, real – genuine Adirondack products, services and events. Once these consumers left the Region they had limited (if any) chance to find and purchase a product they encountered from a small or micro producer when they were here.

In either case, these potential consumers had to scour the Internet to hunt and peck to find what they were looking for (and many never found them), searching through Google and various marketplace websites. What products there are, are often hidden by clutter and questions of what was “genuine” Adirondack and what was not. Many prospective consumers became frustrated and often made no purchase at all.

Then there are the makers, the vast number of artisans within the Adirondack Region, the “invisible factory” of producers that either cannot or do not place their creations, their business listings, services or events on the Internet. In this day and age of modern, sophisticated consumers (who can barely move from room-to-room without an Internet connected device) if it is not on the Internet then it may as well not exist at all.

This is where Genuine Adirondack comes in. We connect consumers searching for all things  “genuine” Adirondack with the vendors who create and provide them. With no cost for e-Commerce or business listings artisans, vendors, businesses and service providers of all kinds can now come together in one platform which consumers can trust to give them the “genuine” Adirondack products, services, business listings and events they seek – all in one place.

Genuine Adirondack is more than a website, it’s a way of saying that the offerings on this platform can be trusted by website users and consumers as actually coming from the hands, hearts and minds of the people who actually live and work here. It is those who actually create the products, provide the services, hold the events and list their Adirondack region businesses within this platform that the users and consumers of this website are looking to find.

This means that users and consumers of this website are actively seeking out authentic, real elements of the Adirondack lifestyle and experience and in doing so provide our vendors with a rich and diverse viewing base that are already predisposed in their desire for the real thing – genuine Adirondack.

These consumers have higher expectations and need to trust that they are getting what they came for. Because we have to build and maintain that trust and the integrity of the products and services, business listings and events, art and literature and other content posted on this website we are more selective about who can join the Genuine Adirondack community than most other platforms.

As the owners of this unique website, the only one website built to connect consumers with Vendors from the Adirondack region,Genuine Adirondack is proud to help makers, sellers and service providers of all kinds promote themselves and thereby promote our region.
