BUY LOCAL, FARM FRESH, VINTAGE & HANDMADE
2017 marks the fifth year of Basilica Farm & Flea Market, and promises to be the biggest yet. Over 100 vendors will fill over 9,000 square feet of Basilica Hudson’s spectacular industrial arts space — making it the largest market of its kind in the region.
Part timeless flea and farmer’s market and part 21st century craft and design fair, Basilica Farm & Flea showcases the abundance and diversity of the Hudson Valley’s artisanal talents — over 90 of the 100+ vendors come from the Hudson Valley. With attendance growing each year, Basilica Hudson is reaching new local and regional audiences while offering important platforms for avant-garde and emerging artists, local chefs, farmers, artisans and other talents to engage and exchange with new audiences.
Proceeds from admissions and vendor fees support ongoing operations for the organization, and allows Basilica Hudson to continue to develop and present its programs.
Items include elegant handcrafted jewelry; ceramics; wild-foraged health, wellness and beauty products; textiles and paper goods; furniture and home decor and vintage clothing, objects, paintings, home goods and collectibles.
All participating vendors are independent artists and designers or collectors of high quality vintage wares who embody the "no barcode" ethos of Basilica Farm & Flea. The carefully-selected roster of vendors includes disciplined craftspersons and community-minded collectors like Lumpland, Fahari Bazaar, Catskill Glassworks, Of Note Stationary and CMYLOOK.
The agricultural bounty of the Hudson Valley is on offer to enjoy at Basilica Farm & Flea, with marketplace highlights including Good Fight Herb Co., Chaseholm Farm, Maple Leaf Sugaring, Rockerbox Spice Co, Hudson Brewing Co, Yankee Distillers, Anarchy Apiariesand Fruition Chocolate and vendors producing everything from produce, meat, dairy, grains, mushrooms, seeds and herbs to soaps, ciders and tinctures.
FOOD & BAR
A sumptuous assortment of farm-to-table eats will be available in the Basilica Farm & Flea food court from Basilica Hudson’s resident chef Nicole Lobue of Alimentary Kitchen and Ruby and Sather Duke of Raven and Boar. Specially crafted cocktails will be available for purchase at the Basilica Farm & Flea bar thanks to Fish & Game, while Irving Farm Coffee Roasters return with their espresso machine in tow. Meanwhile, Brooklyn Oyster Party will be making their Basilica Farm & Flea debut, serving oysters sourced from the most pristine and coldest water. Maple Leaf Sugaring will also return with their signature maple syrup cotton candy and a collaboration with Irving Farm Coffee, blending their two products to create the Basilica Farm & Flea signature ‘Snowball Coffee’.
Basilica Hudson could not realize its ambition of showcasing the talents of the Hudson Valley through Basilica Farm & Flea without the generous support of its community partners. Basilica Hudson has this year partnered with Green Mountain Energy, Columbia County Tourism, WM Farmer & Sons and Camphill Village to present the biggest Basilica Farm & Flea ever.
