Who is Mr. Putnam?
Gideon Putnam was one of the founders of Saratoga Springs, and lends his name to a few things around here. When we first opened at 63 Putnam Street, our name was Putnam Street Market Place- it made sense to tell people what we are and where we are. Things got tricky when we moved to Broadway… We shortened the name to Putnam Market.

Will you open a Putnam Market in my town?
There are a lot of things that go into running a business, and among them is time. Catharine and William have two kids in school; Gloria and her husband have four busy children. There are no expansion plans at the moment.
