Winter market to sell New York's Hudson Valley's local foods
If you are like me and longing for Spring and signs of the first blooms - and the first farmer's markets - here's an event for you that I read about in the Poughkeepsie Journal. Winter Sun Farms will sponsor a Winter Market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this coming Saturday at Deyo Hall on Broadhead Avenue in New Paltz, New York. The market will feature Hudson Valley products and fun family demonstrations. Participating farms include: Taliaferro Farms, Four Wind Farms, Phillies Bridge, Brook Farm, Grey Mouse Farm, Veritas Farms, Acorn Hill, Conuco Farms, Bradley Farms, Pika's Quiches, Threshold Farm, Wild Hive Bakery and more. Winter Sun Farm was launched by Jim Hyland, in order to create a line of frozen vegetables under one label that are being sold in a community-supported agriculture model.
