Troy’s $125 million re-development of the Waterfront District just got a little more delectable. As the Troy Record recently reported, the city will be adding the River Street Market, a 12,000-square-foot food hall set to open on the first floor of the Hedley Building this summer. Twelve different farm-to-table vendors will sell their style of food and beverages to Troy’s growing downtown population.

Spearheading the project are Katie and Luke Haskins, who co-own Hooked, a seafood restaurant in Latham’s Galleria 7 food hall. “We were inspired by all the markets we encountered in our travels,” Luke told the Record. “From those in New York City, Redding Market, to Florence, Italy. We wanted to bring that idea to the Capital Region.” The couple will add a business of their own to the River Street Market—a wine, charcuterie and sandwich bar called Lord & Montague, named after the Troy-based inventor of the detachable shirt collar, Hannah Lord Montague.

Entrepreneurs Katie and Luke Haskins are spearheading the waterfront project.

Another vendor will be Sunhee’s on the River, a spin-off of Sunhee’s Farm and Kitchen on Ferry Street. “Our bar manager first told us about the space after attending the Hedley Park Place Centennial Event,” owner of Sunhee’s Farm and Kitchen Jinah Kim told the Record. “The intended vision of [the space] aligned with what we wanted to achieve in the lower Hudson region of Troy—an opportunity to create something new that also complemented our brand, all while being community-focused. Troy is all about maintaining community. We’re all excited to have the freedom to take on our own character within this collaborative space that understands the relationship aspect [of business].”

And vendors aren’t the only ones excited about River Street Market. Hedley Park Place Project Manager Denisse Grimm told the Record: “Having it will create a great energy and ambiance for the building…Also, it’s easy to get to, it’s right off the exit ramp from the highway and we have ample parking. It’s ideal for anybody looking to stop by quick and grab unique and healthier foods on the go.”
