Brookton's Market

Historic Hamlet of Brooktondale

Brookton's Market

Brooktondale, New York 14817, United States

Created By: Ithaca Heritage


Constructed on the site of a former plaster mill, this building has been a store since its establishment by Frank Vorhis in the late 1880s. Frank Mulks became proprietor of the market in the early 1890s. He was also postmaster and ran the post office in the building. The store remained in the Mulks family until 1924, when it was purchased by Robert Tucker, who operated an IGA market until the 1940s. In 2006-2007, Avi Smith renovated the building and storefront, and his mother, Deborah Halpern, opened Brookton’s Market in late 2007. Aaron Snow purchased the business in 2013, continuing the Snow family’s long history in Brooktondale as owners of one of Caroline’s “Century Farms.”
