"Listen to your appetite and play with your food." Alton Brown
Hello Hudson Farmers' Market Friends!
Don't know about you but we are beat from all of the trick-or-treating! We saw lots of goblins, ghosts, and ghouls walking the streets of Hudson last night-- asking for candy, scaring strangers, and genuinely enjoying the sweetness of this magical holiday!
We only have a fewmoremarkets left in this season. What a wonderful year it has been for all of our vendors and all of our customers. We cannot thank you enough for all your support. In exchange for all the love, we want to share some of our favoritefoodpodcasts and YouTubechannels with you.
We love Binging with Babish which is a show on YouTube hosted by Andrew Rea. He recreates food from movies, shows, and video games.

Kat Kinsman runs the Food and Wine podcast called Communal Table which offers in depth conversations with professionals in the cooking world. Chefs, bakers, food entrepreneurs, and writers. It's great and just so truthful. Lots of real, honest conversations.
Emmymade in Japan is another wonderful YouTube channel. Here, Emmy Cho regularly introduces her viewers to food that is fairly obscure and rare. She will research and share the history of certain recipes, ingredients, or food items and explain the experience of eating the chosen dish. One of the more recent ones that was fabulous was when she made mesquite jelly, which is considered poor man's honey in certain parts of the country.
Epicurious has an amazing YouTube channel! They have a series called Price Pointsthat asks industry professionals to sample a specific item and rate its cost based on flavor, texture, smell, etc. They also have another fun series which show the amateur cook, the home cook, and the professional chef making the same dish-- it's called 4 Levels of...
Our guest vendors this week are Wild Roots soap and Hudson Valley Candle Company. Columbia Urban Design students will be under the Community Tent with an interactive installation about Hudson Valley agriculture and public spaces.
