Talbott & Arding Cheese and Provisions Shop Gets a Supersized Space Upgrade

Hudson's Cheesemonger Now Has Room to Spread Out
Hudson’s premier cheese and provisions shop Talbott & Arding is making big moves this month, expanding into a sprawling new space on Allen Street. Clocking in at 8,000 square feet, the new storefront will be a continuation of T&A’s current concept as a hub for local provisions makers. With plenty of room to stretch their wings, the new  location will have expanded offerings of cheese, charcuterie, pastries, and fresh pasta; plus a re-crafted food menu, space to eat in-house, and a wine and beer inventory.

Stronger Together: How the Hudson Business Community Is Working to Bolster the City's Economy and Each Other

When the pandemic shut down the economy in late March, much of Hudson’s thriving business scene ground to a halt. Instead of waiting for the flow of visitors to return, however, members of the business community began to refocus their efforts closer to home. Organizations like the Hudson Business Coalition, City of Hudson Tourism Board, and the Columbia Economic Development Corporation are working to ensure residents, businesses, and visitors alike have the resources and support to weather the changes brought by the pandemic.

Culture Cream: The Probiotic Ice Cream Shack in Hudson

Performance artist. Fermenter. World traveller. Spice collector. Ice cream maker. These seemingly disparate vocations fold together deliciously in the work and life of Katiushka Melo, the dynamic force behind probiotic ice cream project Culture Cream. Call it small town kismet or keeping an open mind, but one day, cruising up Warren Street, Melo eyed the shabby storage shack behind Backbar and new it could be her location. A whirlwind vision and a wild paint job later, she opened up shop in July, amidst a social distancing-inspired gravel patio, lush with plants and picnic tables. "It has this tropical, beachy vibe," Melo says, which her neon shack and exotic ice creams only elevate.

Hudson Bonds Provide Pandemic Relief to the City's Small Business Community

Despite increased summer sales, many small businesses are still reeling from the pandemic's effect on the economy.

The purchase of a $50 Hudson Bond gives you $25 to spend at any participating business and allocates $25 to a grant fund where those same businesses can get direct relief.

  • Stone Wave Yoga: Tending the Flame of Personal and Communal Wellness

    In the summer of 2019, Liz Glover Wilson had just opened the second location of her burgeoning Gardiner yoga studio and wellness campus, Stone Wave Yoga, in Poughkeepsie. Like so many other small business owners in the Hudson Valley, she had no way of knowing that only months later her entire business would fundamentally change. With the pandemic’s economic and personal challenges constantly at her door, however, yoga remained the one thing that Glover Wilson knew she could count on. “A lot of the students who stayed with us this last year are hungry to learn more about the yoga tool kit because they’re seeing that it really does work,” she says.
