Sackett Square Marketplace
In December, Sackett Square Marketplace in Amenia will host a Local Artisan Gift Shop offering handmade items and gift baskets. Special Sip & Shop events, with complimentary local wine, sparkling seltzer and light snacks, will be held at the marketplace December 1 and 22, from 5 to 9 p.m.
The Local Artisan Gift Shop will carry one-of-a-kind items such as handmade soap, herbal skincare products, jewelry, pottery, candles, cutting boards, woven scarves and wooden toys. It also offers fixed-price and customizable gift baskets of all products, including olives, hummus, cheese, preserves, crackers and spreads. Preorders and free gift wrapping are available.
A one-stop shop for everything local, Sackett Square Marketplace is dedicated to providing the community with fresh food and healthy products grown, harvested and made nearby in the Hudson Valley, says owner Lauren Williams. Among its standard offerings are organic produce; pasture-raised beef, lamb, pork and poultry; milk and cheese; granola; heritage milled grains; coffee; honey; and maple syrup.
“Each week we pick up our fresh goods at the farm or have them delivered directly from the farmer, crafter or small business,” Williams says. “We believe in the importance of knowing who and where our food comes from.”
Marketplace hours are Fridays from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
