Purchased by Dutch settlers in 1662 and founded as a city in 1785, Hudson is abundant with some of the most gorgeously restored buildings in the Hudson Valley. The city is now teeming with diverse art and culture, influenced by its past. A day in Hudson nearly transports you to another time period in a city scattered with brilliant shops and eateries.

EAT/DRINK
Wm. Farmer and Sons
From the mercantile, to the restaurant, to the hotel, everything WM Farmer and Sons offers is beautifully curated and creates an atmosphere of modern upscale comfort.
 
STAY
3rd State Hudson & Wm. Farmer and Sons
Just a short walk off the main drag is 3rd State, a mix between an upscale hostel and a country-chic hotel. The building dates back to 1864 and includes three fully functional apartments and four single bedrooms.

WM Farmer & Sons inhabits a historic boarding house in Downtown Hudson. Bought and renovated by a southern chef and his designer wife, the place is imbued with a spirit of hospitality, history, and warmth. The boarding rooms at WM Farmer and Sons are eclectic, and the suites are designed to create unique experiences.
 

LIVE
The Hudson Warehouse, Vintage India NYC
& Solaris Artisan Shop
The Hudson Warehouse is a massive collection of antiques located in the former L&B Furniture Factory on the waterfront. It’s a community of antiques dealers and designers who operate their retail shops under one roof. Each shop is independently operated, giving customers a chance to interact directly with business owners.

Vintage India NYC is an incredible store inside the Hudson Warehouse. The store’s vivid, glowing colors resemble a fairytale land of irresistible, handmade treasures. Peruse the stunning clothing for both men and women, along with jewelry, incense, statues, decor, and more.

Solaris, the artisan shop at Camphill Hudson, carries many products made by the Camphill Hudson Community in addition to other Camphill products from around the world. You will find an array of beautiful gifts, including woven baskets, pottery, wooden toys, candles, and more.
 

De Marchin & Flowerkraut
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, De Marchin, a men and women’s boutique, specializes in avant garde European fashion. The owner, Paul de Marchin, is from Belgium. He brings an unexpected, creative novelty and handsome taste to Hudson.

Adorned with the sweetest mini ceramic hanging baskets, candles, paper goods, and gift items, this shop is simply lovely. Mairead Rhona Travins and Seth Benjamin Travins, wife-and-husband team, combined their specialties to form Flowerkraut, which focuses on custom floral design and a full range of lacto-fermented vegetables. Season permitting, the flowers are grown in and around the Berkshires and Hudson Valley, and the vegetables are sourced from organic farms they know and trust.
