We've had our final "organizational" meeting and we're opening at the corner of Columbia and Sixth, in Hudson, NY, on May 8 with lots of plants and hanging baskets for Mothers' Day. We'll also have several new vendors, eggs, cheese, and early vegetables. Can't wait to see our customers again.

As we closed the Market on November 21st, after 29 weeks at our current site, we gave thanks for so many things......the Saturday weather, the openness of our site, the sponsorship of the Mayor's office, the faithfulness of our vendors, the cooperation and encouragement of so many Hudson businesses, and of course......our customers old and new. We look forward to next year!

Please visit with these high schoolers to find out more about what we can each do to reverse this world-wide problem. More information is available at www.350.org.

Wow, the fall has been busy! Today's market was sunny and a little nippy....a good day for wool socks! Although a few of the vendors, those with tender vegetables, are done for the year, we still have a solid core of farmers bringing produce, milk, meats, flowers, baked goods, pesto, cheese, and eggs. We're open through the weekend before Thanksgiving.......this would be a great place to buy those pies and breads that make the Thanks giving meal so special!

Yesterday was another great Saturday! After days and days of rain -- a deluge every day -- we enjoyed the one crisp, sunny day we can expect this week. Lots of food buyers, beautiful kids, and friendly dogs! We welcomed back Martin's Sweet Corn, and they sold out before the market even ended. We needed to postpone our annual corn roast because the rain has been so persistent that it has been difficult to pick!
Rain has been a problem for all of the farmers....garlic is wet and difficult to dry, some seeds have rotted in the ground and need to be re-planted, and some of the farmers have small streams that are now swollen over some of the fields. In spite of a tomato/potato blight in the area, several vendors did have wonderful ones. Dale had peaches! We have been hugely lucky....every vendor has product in abundance!
Our calendar, found at www.hudsonfarmersmarketny.com, and our newsletter (same address to sign up, keep everyone up to date on any special events.

On July 25th, we welcome Joan Zippe, from Ginsburg's Foods. She will be selling the Ginsburg's own cookbook with all proceeds going to local hospital charities. Let's get out and support our hospital with this worthy project.

It promises to be a big day in Hudson tomorrow. The Farmers' Market will of course be open and there is also a two day festival at the waterfront, honoring the history of Henry Hudson. The Half Moon will be at the dock and there are lots of children's activities.
