Hudson Farmers Market and Hattie Larlham jointly announce the opening of HFM's indoor market at Hattie's Cafe of Hudson.
Beginning Oct. 5, Hudson Farmers Market will move indoors to Hattie's Cafe on the corner of Route 91 and Clinton Street, just across the street from the current outdoor market on the Clock Tower Green. The indoor market will run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 21.
"Hudson Farmers Market patrons have long asked for an indoor market and will now be able to enjoy the market through the late fall," said Kate Harmon, market board president. "This partnership with Hattie Larlham gives the market an ideal location and allows the market to continue to be an economic driver for the downtown area right into the holiday season."
Hattie Larlham, which runs Hattie's Cafe in Hudson, has had an ongoing relationship with Hudson Farmers Market. Hattie's Cafe has been a vendor at the market since 2009. This year, the organization introduced produce from Hattie's Gardens at the market.
"The indoor market will strengthen the relationship between our two organizations and provide benefits on both sides," said Dotty Grexa, vice president of vocational and enterprise services for Hattie Larlham. "The Cafe offers a warm atmosphere for the market and visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the warmth of Hattie's hospitality during their visit to the market, as well."
Hudson Farmers Market will occupy the space adjoining the cafe that was previously used as a gift shop. While the number of vendors will be reduced, the market will continue to offer a variety of produce and other goods.
