RAFFLE WINNER is: Maribeth W! We are very happy that our Mother's Day/Ribbon Cutting Day Raffle was so successful. Thank you to everyone who entered in person and on social media. And a big thank you to all of our vendors who participated: Blue Star Farm, Bonhomie Farm, Red Oak Farm, Cedar Flower Farm, Ardith Mae Farm, Trixie's Oven, and Happy Belly. Maribeth will be grabbing her market bag filled with goodies on Saturday!
This weekend we are having our ANNUAL Ribbon Cutting with the Chamber of Commerce-- Mayor Johnson, Rep Antonio Delgado, and the Chamber President Bill Gerlach will be in attendance. So all you early morning shopper can be there for the event!
Market is every Saturday, rain or shine. Hours are back to 9am to 1pm. Masks and distancing is required.
We are also celebrating Mother's Day this weekend! We are here for your purposeful last minute shopping.
Our recommendation: grab a beautiful $10 Hudson Farmers' Market bag and fill it with some amazing goodies from our vendors. Here are some ideas...
...grab some delicious and vibrant greens! Lettuces, kale, chard, spinach, herbs, micro-greens, nettles. You can find them with Bonhomie Farm, Martin Farm, Red Oak Farm, Blue Star Farm, and The Farm at Miller's Crossing.
...some basil and garlic farmers cheese, alpine-style raw milk cheese wedges, and creamy camembert from Chaseholm Farm. You can also find cheese from Cooperstown Dairy and Churchtown Dairy with Rock N Raw and Maplebrook Cheese with Billy's Italian Market.
...grab one of the amazing cuts of pork from Raven and Boar. This one is coppa (or collar roast)! You can also get meat and fish from Highland Farm (plus those insane eggs in the title image!), Martin Farms, Northern Star Farm, Farm at Miller's Crossing, Pura Vida, and Hudson Valley Fisheries.
...grab a few bars of soap from our guest vendor Whispering Willow Farm. They make cold-process organic soaps made with herbs and flowers from their gardens-- this one is lavender, spirulina, and oatmilk!
...grab a top-tier banger of a bagel from CIRCLES, who is another of our guest vendors this weekend. They will have poppyseed bagels topped with ramp cream cheese, and the addition of house pickles and salmon roe! This will be the perfect breakfast.
...grab some spirits! NEVER a bad idea for mothers or for Mother's Day. Berkshire Mountain Distillery will have their Shay's Rebellion American-style whiskey, aged rum, ethereal garden gin, and more. Hudson Chatham Winery will also be at market in case your mama is into wine instead of spirits.
Abby Lappen will be performing this weekend in the upper lot! We are so excited to welcome Abby back. There is nothing better than having her beautiful music along with her soulful voice at our market. What a treasure.
Here is a PDF of the federal, state, and city guidelines that we are following for COVID. Since we have so many of the same readers each week, we are going to forgo the usual POLICY and PROTOCOL sections to give you more content. Feel free to download it and review. We are asking customers to continue masking and distancing.
