August 10th, 2019

Please note that we are closing the Market a half hour earlier in August.
We still open at 8:30 but we will close at 1pm instead of 1:30.

Stoneberry’s heirlooms are finally ripened on the vine and ready for Market. Hunter and Connor started the farm this year, and though there has been a lot of hard work and unforeseen challenges, harvesting beautiful vegetables and bringing them to the Market is what makes it worth it. It was befitting that when Taliaferro retired, we brought in a new generation of Hudson Valley farming families that can grow with yours. We are excited to see what the rest of this season and future seasons hold for them.

Text: If you’re a meat eater, chances are you probably rotate between poultry, pork, and beef. If you’re a veteran Market shopper, you might already add duck and lamb into that rotation, but if you haven’t yet, let us gently encourage you outside of your comfort zone and into the tents of Hudson Valley Duck Farm and Wil Hi Farm. Wil Hi makes their monthly visit on Saturday and along with their lamb they sell goats milk soap, yarn, and dryer balls. Hudson Valley Duck is at the Market every week with whole duck, duck charcuterie, duck fat, and their HIGHLY popular duck breast. People love it for its versatility — you can grill it for dinner and use the leftovers for a lunch salad the next day. You can also use the fat from the breast to flavor potatoes or pan-seared shishitos. Pick up a package from Lou and make this grilled duck breast with peach and goat cheese salad. Head to Wrights for the peaches and Painted Goat Farm for the cheese.

Riccardo started Lasagna Preziosa years ago, sharing the Italian food of his youth with Hastings Farmers’ Market families, all while holding down a full-time job as a gemologist. After years of perfecting his mozzarella, focaccia, and arancini craft, he has finally been able to expand his menu, thanks to his son Matteo. After graduating from college, Matteo joined his father in the business and this added Befi power has allowed them to rebrand the business (it’s now called diRiso), expand into NYC street markets, and most importantly, bring us more delicious food! Their newest item? Fried lasagna bites! They taste exactly as you imagine — gooey, salty, and filling. Try one on Saturday!
