Join the Hudson Farmers Market this Saturday from 9am to 1pm at 6th & Columbia and the St Johns Church parking lot!
Market Updates for Saturday September 26th Ask most folks who like to eat local and they'll tell you September is the best month. You've still got the best of the summer vegetables: tomatoes, peppers and the like. But the cooler temps mean that greens like lettuce and kale are at their happiest. And there are a few spectacular fall treats that are not to be missed. Blue Star Farm has fresh ginger, with beautiful pink stems and fabulous spicy flavor. Martins Farm has small, sweet honeynut squash, perfect for roasting or making soup. And don't miss the brief season for romanesco cauliflower at Samascott Orchards.
Market Locations and Time The Hudson Farmers Market has divided its vendors between two spots to provide ample space for social distancing. Several vendors remain at our original location at6th and Columbia Street, the upper market. Most vendors have moved to the metered lot behind St Johns Church (just a bit down the block), the lower market. See below for the list of where vendors are located. Market hours are 9AM to 1PM! Reminder: you can line up before 9AM, but we can't start selling until then. Please swing by our new info tent in the lower market to pick up a market map, use your EBT card and snag seasonal recipes.
Masks are required at market for all customers and vendors. This is for our vendors safety as well as yours
Please remember to keep 6 feet apart while shopping and waiting in line. Our vendors are doing the best they can to keep lines organized and moving quickly.
Eating and drinking is not allowed at market. Please save your treats until you get home.
There are hand sanitizer stations in both market locations, next to the porta johns.
The slowest time at market is 9am to 10am. We encourage any high-risk customers to shop during that time.
Most importantly, if you are feeling sick, please stay home.
