Take Main Street west and one mile outside of our downtown you’ll come upon it, a fully restored 1800s watermill. One look at the building and you’ll be awed by the craftsmanship of its original builders, and its restorers. One step inside and you’ll be inspired by the craftsmanship of the over 125 small businesses who sell their wares within its walls.
The Artisan Mill Co. is a collective of local makers, expertly curated by owners, Ian and Ashley Gantz. Ian and Ashley opened Artisan Mill Co. in November, 2020. They knew small businesses took a hard hit through Covid and wanted to help. Lititz was an obvious choice for their location. They embrace the love local movement and grew up here in and around Lititz.
Two years after opening, and Artisan Mill Co. has grown from 50 small businesses to 125. As Ashley says, “From soap, to jewelry, to home goods to wood- there’s a wide variety of goods for everyone. And if you have been here before, everyone has a different favorite booth. Booths change with the seasons and holidays.”
