Nearly 200 vendors of all types will be represented Memorial Day weekend.

I've often talked about my love the Walkway over the Hudson. I think it's one of the greatest things that the Hudson Valley has to offer and I've taken full advantage of it over the years, having it right practically in our own backyard. I have often made it a routine to walk the walkway from the Poughkeepsie side to Highland side and back as a regular exercise routine sporadically.

I remember back in the fall of 2020 attending a giant farmers market at the Walkway Over the Hudson. I had been going for a walk and just happened to stumble upon a farmers market which I hadn't even known was happening. It was great! I picked up some wine and cheese along withe pickles and treats for my dog.
