Support small businesses throughout the Hudson Valley in-person and online to score deals on gifts and give back to the community this holiday season.

This year, Black Friday shopping at big-box stores doesn’t sound as tempting as it has in holiday seasons past. Besides avoiding the crazy-long lines, early alarms, and 6 a.m. horror stories where every year someone nearly loses a limb, sticking with socially distant shopping in the Hudson Valley is a wonderful way to support regional artisans during a particularly challenging year. Shop local this Small Business Saturday, and you’ll not only conquer your holiday gift list, but also give back to your community. These Hudson Valley vendors are just a few of the many local shops participating and, this year, the sales are big.

Orange

For a less-crowded experience, shop nearly 30 of your favorite local vendors at the eighth annual Small Business Saturday Shop Hop in Cornwall. Then stroll through the Sugar Loaf Art & Craft Village for giveaways, refreshments, and locally crafted gifts. If you’re up to it, don’t forget to swing by Kaliada Boutique in Warwick in-person or browse online for specials on gifts.

Ulster

Mark the start of the holiday season with a memorable trip to Historic Huguenot Street, but, before you leave, be sure to check out the Museum Shop for local holiday shopping. Seeking a better future in 2021? New Paltz’s Psychic Fair returns for Small Business Saturday in the Hudson Valley.

Dutchess

Start the day by scoring on vinyl. Swing by Darkside Records for surprise discounts and exclusive releases, all fueled by Poughkeepsie Grind Coffee. To really get into the spirit of the season, head to Soukup Farms in Dover Plains to sample Hudson Valley products and try out the farm’s new maple syrups, or utilize their farm stand curbside pickup; they make the holiday season delightfully festive. Spend time walking down Main Street in Beacon for a vast array of small businesses, including Play (a toy store for all ages), Hudson Beach Glass, Luxe Optique, and much more.

Putnam

Cold Spring stretches out Small Business Saturday to ensure that everyone has the time to shop safely and comfortably. Browse deals online or walk through the riverside village for a marvelous shopping experience.
