SARATOGA SPRINGS — Impressions of Saratoga and The Dark Horse Mercantile are now delivering Saratoga Mother’s Day Porch Packages.
Each Porch Package is delivered in a reusable Saratoga tote and filled with locally made food products and Saratoga specific items. There are basic "pre-assembled" Porch Packages from $25 to $150 price points featuring all Saratoga made products and are also fully customizable.
Marianne Barker and Maddy Zanetti, Co-Owners, are “contactless delivering” all local Porch Packages by walking, biking, or driving them to their destination and they have recruited help from family members too. In addition, many are being shipped all across the country.
They have teamed up with other local businesses and now have products from Saratoga Coffee Traders, Angel Wings BBQ sauce and Saratoga Tea & Honey, plus the vendors they already worked with; Cobble Hill Farms, Mapleland Farms, Dean’s Delicious Dog Treats, Adirondack Candle Co., Saratoga Spicery, Saratoga Beef Jerky, Healthy Gourmet, Sunnyside Gardens, Saratoga Candy Co, Sundaes Best, Lazy Dog, Saratoga Chocolate Co, Decresente, and more.
“Since we will still be unable to gather with our moms this year, we thought a Mother’s Day Porch Package would be a great way to spread some joy. You can add a flowering plant from Sunnyside Gardens to any local deliveries and we have a bunch of fun Mother’s Day Cards tool,” says Barker.
Zanetti said, “The two original Saratoga Porch Packages that we developed just three weeks ago have been so successful that we created Saratoga Porch Packages and added more than a dozen new ‘Pre-Assembled’ Porch Packages, some specifically for Mother’s Day. We will be including ‘Saratoga Porch Packages’ into our everyday business once the doors open again. Right now we have porch-packing stations set up around the back of the store. The response and support has been incredible.”
