Cider Market & Tasting
As a part of both New York State’s Path Through History Weekend and Hudson Valley Cider Week, Historic Huguenot Street will host a local cider market and tasting on Saturday, June 20.
The market will feature 10 Hudson Valley cider makers, including: Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider (produced at Breezy Hill Orchard and Stone Ridge Orchard), Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery (maker of Doc’s® Draft Ciders, Warwick), Glorie Farm Winery (Marlboro), The Standard Cider Company (owned by Brotherhood Winery, Washingtonville), Aaron Burr Cidery (Wurtsboro), Orchard Hill Cider Mill (located at Soons Orchard, New Hampton), Kettleborough Cider House (New Paltz), Pitchfork Hard Cider (Poughkeepsie), Glynwood (Cold Spring), and Angry Orchard (recently moved to Walden).
As part of the market, Historic Huguenot Street and Kettleborough Cider House will be introducing a historic crab apple hard cider, brewed by Kettleborough in collaboration with HHS. The cider’s use of crab apples is true to how the early founders of New Paltz would have brewed their own cider, which was a popular colonial drink.
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. Vendors will be selling ciders and other products from their farms, as well as offering tastings of their various hard ciders. Admission is $5 and grants access for the duration of the market. Guests tasting cider must be 21+ with ID.
