Agriculture is a driving force in the Hudson Valley, and a way of life for our many family-owned farms, some in existence for more than 100 years! Plan to stop at one of our farmers markets throughout the county for a one-stop-shopping opportunity. Or, try a specialty food shop, many of whom are selling their products online or offering curb-side pickup. Looking to spend some time in the great outdoors? Pick-up fresh produce and other foods from one of our farm stands to fill your picnic basket with fresh cheeses, breads, and other locally-crafted delicacies to enjoy at one of our the many parks. Dutchess County offers farm-to-table eating at its best!
