As part of Hudson Valley Cider Week, Historic Huguenot Street will host its second annual hard cider market and tasting on Saturday, June 11. This year’s market has been expanded to feature even more regional cideries, as well as including local wineries, breweries, food trucks, and live music from The Sweet Clementines. In addition to ciders, vendors will be selling other products from their orchards and farms as well, including fresh cut flowers, local apples, apple cider donuts, and more.
The Huguenot Street market will feature over a dozen New York State cider makers, wineries, and breweries including: Aaron Burr Cidery, Naked Flock Hard Cider, Angry Orchard, Awestruck Ciders, Brooklyn Cider House, Descendant Cider Co., The Gilded Otter, Hardscrabble Cider, Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider, Kettleborough Cider House, Nine Pin Cider, Sundog Cider, St. Lawrence Hard Cider, Doc's Draft Hard Cider, Whitecliff Vineyard, Yankee Folly Cidery, and more.
Cider Week helps build appreciation and demand for regional ciders and local orchards by celebrating the area’s vibrant craft cider culture. The market will take place on the Deyo House lawn across from the DuBois Fort (81 Huguenot Street) and will be open from 12 – 4 pm. Admission is $10 and grants access to unlimited tastings for the duration of the market. Guests tasting cider must be 21+ with ID. Designated drivers receive free admission. The first 25 people to arrive will receive a free tasting glass. Pre-registration is encouraged; those who register in advance at huguenotstreet.org/rsvp will be entered to win an 1677 Huguenot Wheat pint glass, a book about cider making, and two free tickets for a guided tour on Huguenot Street.
