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 November 7th We usually think of the superstars of farmers market as spring and summer fruits ad vegetables: strawberries, asparagus, heirloom tomatoes and melons. But there are some truly spectacular fall treats. And once the distractions of summer fade away, we can focus on these autumn delights.
All of the cold nights we had in October made for some spectacularly sweet cabbages. You can find gorgeous dark green savoy cabbage at the Farm at Miller's Crossing. Try it in Smitten Kitchen's recipe for roasted cabbage with walnuts and parmesan.
For all the radish lovers out there, this is your moment. Bonhomie Farm is harvesting fresh bunched red radishes and you can grab a few spicy watermelon radishes from Blue Star Farm. They would be perfect mixed together in this simple radish rainbow salad recipe.
Pear season in New York lasts just a few short months. Samascott grows several varieties. The lushious shenandoah pear takes a week to ripen and yields creamy, sweet flesh. Tiny seckel pears are perfect for snacking. And classic bosc pears are perfect for making David Lebovitz's red wine poached pear tart.
GUEST VENDORS We're so excited to have Asia Luna back at market tomorrow. They'll have their hand made soaps, lovely scented hand sanitizer spritzes and their famous bubble kits.
Fazia will be at market selling masks. Hudson Valley Distillers is also back this week. The Hudson Valley was once the nation’s bread basket, and Hudson Valley Distillers is proud to carry on the tradition of making spirits from fruits and grains sourced within walking distance of their distillery. Family run, veteran-owned and operated; their mission is to create thoughtfully crafted spirits and bottled cocktails so that their customers can experience “time well spent."

Please be sure to visit both locations!Market hours are 9AM to 1PM.

Our outdoor market will run in our current locations through Saturday November 21st. We'll be closed for Saturday 11/28 and then our winter market will kick off the first Saturday in December.
