  • The Mid-Hudson Marketplace Fall Festival at Nostrano Vineyards

When family and newborn photographer Melissa Chartier Surprise opened her Poughkeepsie studio years ago, she found an immediate synchronous connection with the business next door, Waddle n Swaddle. Thinking of the many amazing women she knew in the area who had similarly grown their passions into businesses, Surprise started hosting monthly meet-ups where people could connect. Each meeting, the group would highlight a particular member’s business, and eventually a desire to showcase all that talent swelled. An event took shape and, last year, it settled into a permanent collaboration with Nostrano Vineyards in Milton. This year, on Saturday, October 1st, the Mid-Hudson Marketplace is hosting its third annual fall festival of seventy curated vendors: artists, makers, crafters, farmers, mom-and-pops, and pop-up shops. And there are a few great reasons to bring the kids.

Nestled in Nostrano Vineyards’ big, beautiful field, where kids love to run and play, amidst the barn and vendor tables, will be a family-friendly spot where families can also curl up. Poughkidsie will host hourly demonstrations and activities for the little ones. It might be a book reading, a science experiment, or a DIY craft, at their creative work booth and play station. Waddle n Swaddle will set up a nursing and baby changing station so parents can have a comfortable place to be with their babies. And Frida’s Bakery will be offering a kid-friendly food craft at their second booth in the play area. It’s a whole wing of kids activities and family-friendliness to enjoy while families peruse the marketplace for handcrafted jewelry, culinary treats and art to inspire cooking, teas and spices, fashion, and artisanal goods. "It’s a whole celebration of the Hudson Valley and what we have here," says Surprise, "and we want everybody to come celebrate."

The Third Annual Mid-Hudson Marketplace Fall Festival at Nostrano Vineyards, 14 Gala Lane in Milton: Saturday, October 1, 2016; 11 am – 5 pm; free! Near the willow tree will be food trucks with specialties and indulgences, like samosas, cookies, handcut fries, and cupcakes. Bring a blanket to sit out in the field across the creek and grab some of Nostrano’s delicious grapes, apples, and wine. For more details, visit the Mid-Hudson Marketplace website and Facebook event.
