Basilica Farm and Flea Holiday Market Returns Thanksgiving Weekend
HUDSON – Basilica Hudson is proud to announce the return of the Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market this weekend, Nov. 26- 27. Explore and shop local vendors and foods inside one of Hudson’s most beautiful venues!
Born Thanksgiving Weekend 2013 as an antidote to big box Black Friday, Basilica Farm & Flea is part timeless flea and farmer’s market, and part 21st century craft and design fair. Each market features a diverse group of regional vendors selling their wares alongside locally-sourced, farm-fresh foods. The markets embody love of vintage and recycled, locally-sourced agriculture and the beautifully handmade. With over 10,000 square feet of raw space, Basilica Farm & Flea is one of the the only markets of this scale in the region, and is an integral part of Basilica Hudson’s arts and cultural programs.
“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,” adds 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.”
Basilica Farm & Flea has become one of Hudson’s largest events, welcoming thousands of attendees throughout the weekend. At each market, shoppers get the chance to connect with designers and makers in person, adding a memorable note to the pieces they buy and creating a lasting connection. With a ‘no barcode, no plastic wrap’ ethos, Basilica Farm & Flea showcases the splendor of Hudson Valley local makers, farmers and collectors with a focus on homemade and vintage goods.
The event is from 10 am – 6 pm on both days. Day ($5) and weekend ($8) passes are available online, or with cash at the door. Kids under 12 are free. For more information, or to purchase tickets, please visit basilicahudson.org.
Note: No dogs, please. We love our furry friends, but this crowded indoor market is not a suitable environment. Service dogs permitted.
