The Draper Mercantile
Sister company to New River Retreat, The Draper Mercantile has been a favorite local hangout for over 125 years. We’re continuing that tradition and welcome you to the new gathering place for great food, friendly folks and an inspiring atmosphere. The Draper Mercantile and Trading Company serves as a showplace for regional arts, crafts, and music. Shop for unique artwork, traditional Appalachian crafts or catch some live music onstage. Visitors can meet local artists and musicians throughout the year at concerts, artisan demonstrations, and special events.
The Draper Mercantile is also home to the Draper Valley Marketplace, an eclectic little market dedicated to bringing you vibrant, healthful food diversity. The Marketplace features local foods and healthy selections as well as gourmet and world cuisine.
