One of the best things about living in the Hudson Valley is the ability to stay at a fabulous bed and breakfast such as The Caldwell House! Well, that is true but another great thing is that many communities value supporting our local farmers and businesses and are dedicated to providing fresh produce all year long. Whether you are a resident or just on a quick stop over, there is nothing like grabbing some fresh produce, and maybe some New York maple syrup and local wine as well. We gathered some of the winter markets that are close to the Caldwell House so our guests have a quick list they can take on the road—you could even do a little winter market tour!
We encourage you to definitely start out at Blooming Hill Farm Market in Blooming Grove, NY. They are less than ten minutes from our inn and carry a huge variety of wonderful produce including kale, radicchio, onions, potatoes, cabbage, turnips, all kinds of squash, pears, a variety of apples and herbs. They will get you stocked up with all that you need for your holiday cooking! They are open year-round on Saturdays & Sundays; from 10 am-2 pm. Below are some other great markets nearby:
