Hudson eating updates

Happy New Year!  I have seriously been in hibernation – I haven’t even baked cookies.  I finished off a bottle of Ronnybrook eggnog though.  Good stuff.

But, I digress.  I have gotten out of the house a little, only to find that Strongtree Coffee Roasters is moving?  Where???

On a happier note, January is Falafel Awareness Month.  Who knew?  Middle Easteners and vegetarians already know the value of a good falafel, and this month Park Falafel & Pizza is inviting everyone to find out.

Have you tried Truck Pizza at 347 Warren yet?  We’ve had a couple of pizzas and so far, I have to say they are tasty.  You can even get just a half pizza if you are feeling only a little peckish.  Call ahead to eliminate standing outside in the cold…

You may have already discovered this, but Friday and Saturday nights Grazin’ Diner is open until 9:30pm and serving Crossroads beer.

Which is also available at Mod down on Front Street. Have you checked out their gluten free as well as veg/vegan options?  All can eat here.  I recommend the Spicy Green Bean starter.

But back to beer.  If you want to try the full selection of Crossroads brews, as well as wine and their own rootbeer, you should take a little roadtrip to Athens across the river.  Crossroads is open until 9pm Sunday – Thursday, and 12:00am on Fridays and Saturdays.  They’re strictly beverages at the moment, but there is the Roadside Bistro food truck until their kitchen is up and running.

Obviously I have not made any crazy resolutions to eat less…

    Acres Co-op Announces Weekly Saturday Indoor Food Market
    to Bridge Seasonal Gap until Farmers Market Resumes in Spring

    Hudson area residents won’t have to go without fresh, locally produced food this winter. Acres Co-op Market will open its doors every Saturday, beginning January 7, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., providing a space where shoppers and vendors can meet. The market will take place inside 702 Columbia Street (corner of Seventh Street, facing the park, in the building housing WGXC-FM.)
    The co-op’s indoor food market will continue every Saturday until early March, when the established Hudson farmers market resumes. Shoppers will not only be able to fill their grocery baskets there, but also to make advance pledges of membership in the co-op.
    The roster of producers participating in the indoor market, still in formation, includes: North Wind Farms (organic meat); Block Factory Tamales; Breezy Hill Orchards and Migliorelli Farm (vegetables, apples, cider); Berkshire Mountain Bakery; Tierra Farm (nuts, nut butters, coffee); and Amazing Real Life Food Company (cheese). Additional vendors will be announced in coming days.

    Interested food producers and purveyors should contact Mona Coade-Wingate, 774-722-0664.

    Park Falafel & Pizza’s Sales To Benefit Acres Co-op
    on Saturday, January 7, First Day of Indoor Food Market

    Park Falafel & Pizza is celebrating the opening of Acres Co-op Market’s winter indoor food market with a special promotion on Saturday, January 7, from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. When customers mention this offer, 25% of every order (before tax) will be donated to the co-op. The donation is also offered when customers present a special benefit card, which they can obtain at the indoor market or at Park Falafel. Cards can also be found at other Hudson businesses. Park Falafel and Pizza, an Acres Co-op Market partner, is located at 11 North Seventh Street, just steps away from the co-op’s market at 702 Columbia Street. For restaurant information, contact Justin Goldman (518) 828-5500.

      Great news! I much prefer to buy directly from the producer when at all possible. The depths of winter are always a challenge…
