Mill Market targets food from the region
Mill Market Board of Directors chair Grant Genzlinger is executive chef and co-owner of The Settlers Inn, Ledges Hotel and Glass Wine Bar, and Cocoon Coffee House in Hawley. The Genzlingers have strong family ties to the Lake Region. Justin is a managing partner in Ledges Hotel, the Hawley Medical Center and the renovated Silk Mill—a historic native bluestone structure built in 1880. The family hopes Mill Market will further establish the Silk Mill as a vibrant lifestyle center of commerce and community by expanding the demand for local food and goods.
“It’s been our concept to bring a food market to the area that compliments our local grocery and highlights our direct source farmers, value-added food makers, bakers, restaurateurs and caterers,” said Justin. “Mill Market will feature the high quality food that’s made or grown in our area and provide a retail outlet that completes the chain from source to consumer. It’s a mission we’ve been focused on for years in our restaurants.”
Bruce Mackle, w
ho attended the event on behalf of PA Senator Lisa Baker, said he was honored to help launch a market that will become a hometown favorite and hotspot for out-of-town visitors. “The Lake Wallenpaupack region is rich with great food, superior craftsmanship, American history and talented people,” he said. “Mill Market demonstrates that home is not only where the heart is; home is where the world’s best products and services are produced— and some of the world’s best people.” Maura Rottmund of the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce presented the new business with a plaque and with wishes for great success.
