If you’re looking for unique holiday gifts and want to avoid the dreaded Black Friday hellscape, here’s a great option: the Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market, which marks its 10th anniversary at Basilica Hudson on November 26 and 27.
Billed as “part timeless flea and farmer’s market and part 21st-century craft and design fair, the event features a highly diverse group of regional vendors selling their wares alongside locally sourced, farm-fresh foods. With an emphasis on vintage, recycled, and beautifully handmade goods and locally sourced agriculture, the market will host scores of curated vendors in its over 10,000 square feet of raw and historic waterfront space.
“Our mission at Farm & Flea has always been to serve and celebrate our community of entrepreneurs while offering locals an ethical alternative to big-box retailers and online shopping,” says Basilica Farm & Flea coordinator and Hudson Valley artist Elise McMahon. “Ten years in, that mission has become more important than ever as independent, local businesses were the first to suffer and will be among the last to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are so excited to be back and better than ever this year.”
The 10th annual Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market will take place at Basilica Hudson in Hudson on November 26 and 27 from 10am to 6pm each day. Tickets are $5.
