Hudson Valley Farmers Market Keeps Going and Growing, Vendor Opportunities
Hudson Valley Regional Farmers Market
Life has changed a bit since Covid, but the Hudson Valley Regional Farmers Market has remained open almost all last year, with safety precautions in place. The market is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday, year-round (weather permitting). It features live music most weekends.
“We normally would have been inside for the cold-weather months, but this year, in order to maintain safe space, we stayed open outside,” says Melissa Kamin, market manager and director of community relations. “We’ve enjoyed the support of a core group of vendors selling essential products to the community. We’re starting to grow the market in preparation for warmer weather, and we’re welcoming inquiries from vendors to join our market family.”
Current vendors include Aueralia’s Organic Garden, offering handmade breads, chocolate, lip balm and soaps; Kas Spirits, offering spiced honey liquor; Orchard Hill Organics Produce and Fruits; Sharamel Baked Goods; Mike The Cheese Guy, with M & M Italian Provisions; Hudson Valley Petals; and MG Treats, offering homemade dog biscuits.
Other current vendors include Sacred Grounds Organic Coffee Roasters; Andrew Wilkinson Microgreens, with Hudson Valley Vinegars and Hudson Valley Cold-Pressed Oils; Do Re Me Farms; South Salem Winery; Bartolo’s Keto and Italian Gourmet Prepared Foods; General Cochran Meat and Dairy; and Live In Joy Candle Co.
The market is run and operated by Hudson Valley Cerebral Palsy Association. It is closed on some holidays, including Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
