I love that so many of the Hudson Valley farmers markets have extended their season this year. The Poughkeepsie Waterfront Market has announced new October dates, and the Rhinebeck Farmers Market is going to stay open practically through the end of the year. But farmers markets aren't the only cool thing going on right now. What if I told you there is a Holistic Market happening every Saturday through the end of October? Well, there is and it's pretty cool.

Hudson Valley Holistic Market is holding open-air Mystic Markets every Saturday in October from 9AM - 4PM at Akasha's Journey on Route 22 in Dover Plains. Are you worried about the crowds during the pandemic? Don't be, they've got it covered. They will be strictly following the COVID-19 safety protocol for these outdoor gatherings, and offering the Hudson Valley Holistic Markets as outdoor vending events throughout the month of October. Hudson Valley Holistic Market has the best vendors, readers, artisans, artists, and practitioners in the Hudson Valley, including psychic tarot readers, massage, healing arts and so much more.

Vendors include Akasha's Journey, Ann's Booty, Earth Energies, Lioness Botanicals, Moonstone Healing Arts, Tupperware from June, and Zen Spiritz. And Michelle Lorenzo, MA, LMT will be offering Psychic Tarot and Bone Readings on Oct. 17.
