The Hudson River Valley is ground zero for the resurgence in farmers markets and natural foods. The apple business is especially strong and when in season corn, fruits, and vegetables of all sorts are available at farm stands and markets. Ulster County has been able to take advantage of its farming community through its restaurants and the constant influx of new culinary delights created by chefs eager to attract both the local population as well as the adventurous tourist. In almost every town in Ulster County, you will find the table set for elaborate meals or simple rustic fare, in town, in a rural setting or by the great Hudson River.
