Hudson, NY’s Favorite Market

November 29, 2012 9:30 PM

When Dena Moran moved to the Hudson Valley, she had a difficult time sourcing specific ingredients she regularly cooked with. So she decided to become the resource herself and opened up Olde Hudson, a neighborhood market, charcuterie, and cheese board.

With a mix of locally grown produce and pantry goods from domestic and European sources, Moran has created a strong community in her market for the past ten years. For more information on the market and Moran's newly opened butcher shop, visit Olde Hudson.
