One of the most magnificent things about living in the Hudson Valley is the sheer abundance of farms and markets right in our backyard. Now, those places need our help. Like the restaurants of the region, local farms have been hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak. With less foot traffic because of social distancing, markets adapt to the times with delivery and pickup programs designed to keep shoppers safe and sound.
Scroll on to support the farmers of the Hudson Valley.
