Mayfest Essential Farmers’ & Makers’ Market

One event on May 9, 2021 at 12:00 pm
The Mayfest Essential Farmers’ and Makers’ Market will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 8 and 9 from noon to 5 p.m. The event brings a curated selection of the Hudson Valley’s finest producers – farms, distilleries, breweries, wineries, restaurants, artists, artisans and more – to the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and west approach to the Walkway over the Hudson State Historic Park. More than 80 vendors will exhibit their wares for tasting or purchase, allowing participants to support several local agribusinesses in one location.
Mayfest features not only farm-fresh products, food from local restaurants and beer, wine and spirits samples in a designated tasting area, but also art installations, locally made goods, a special area for children’s activities and more. All proceeds from Mayfest benefit the Friends of the Walkway and Hudson Valley Rail Trail, who have partnered to present this farmers’ market.
Tasting tickets are available for $25 and include full access to wine, beer, spirits and cider samples from more than 20 area purveyors. Walkway members, veterans, active-duty military and senior citizens (65+) receive discounted admission. General admission to Mayfest (excluding the tasting area) is free.
There will be a complimentary shuttle running on a continuous loop from the Hannaford Plaza parking lot in Highland (near Tractor Supply) to Mayfest. Access to the shuttle is free.
