Very Local Shopping

Very Local Shopping

Wanted to offer suggestions for shopping during all the holidays as well as throughout the year. Ask any business owner, supporting them directly means the world. Virtually all of these are our personal favorites and didn't pay or anything sly to get listed. Let me know any questions about them as well. Happy to editorialize further. 

The list debuts as very Dutchess County-oriented, but will expand it across the Hudson Valley as we go. The Albany Times-Union also has a roundup of local gift ideas out.


Sawkill Farm: Meat, Eggs, Jams, and .... yarn! Kallie was on episode 41 if you want to get to know her. Sawkill Farm store (pictured above) is on Route 9, just north of Red Hook village. It's red. You can't miss it.

Northwind Farms: One of our other favorite farms for meat is on West Kerley Corners Road and make an appointment or pop by during their open hours.

Equis Art Gallery: Love horses? So does Juliet. Her store in Red Hook Village is awesome and you can shop online and she ships virtually anywhere!

Petals & Moss: Fresh and dried arrangements, this flower shop has a ton to offer and right at the main corner in Red Hook. 


Tivoli Mercantile: Our buddy Jill runs a perfectly curated and useful boutique in the village of Tivoli right on Broadway. Gifts. Toys. Housewares. Cute outfits. Visit online or in-store.


Pause Dog Boutique: Nora's favorite shop is Pause Dog Boutique, run by Sammy, who has the best stuff and her favorite treats that include beef and chicken woofers. 


Alder & Co: Half-way between Red Hook and the city of Hudson off Route 9G is the hamlet of Germantown. Otto's Market is a great little market, Gaskins is the best restaurant in the area and this shop offers beautiful jewelry and other gifts. 


Hamilton & Adams: Home of the famous "Upstate & Chill" t-shirt, we love this store and what they offer. Buy online or stop in. They're easy to find in Uptown.


Citiot: That's right, just across the river from Hudson on Main Street in Catskill is a store for cidiots, just spelled differently. Check out the interview with owner Pim Zeegers, in episode 52 and stop in for their delicious coffee and fun gifts. Tell 'em the other Cidiot sent ya.


The Farmhouse Project: From kitchenwear to cloches (you gotta check out what a cloche is), shop Shawn and Kris’s online store. They moved up years ago to a farmhouse on the other side of the river and we met them at Hamilton & Adams pop-up event. They host a beautiful summer outdoor dinner as well. Follow on Insta.


Pure Catskills: A guide to the Catskills with a nice search engine on its site for local Catskill region farm products and more.
