For the fourth year running, NY designer and tastemaker Brad Ford is hosting his must-visit modern makers fair, Field + Supply. This year the event takes place at a new venue, the Hutton Brickyards in Kingston, NY (we’ll be there), a reimagined hundred-year-old industrial site on the banks of the Hudson River. The expanded program includes Live Music (nine acts over three days), Workshops, and a range of some of our favorite Exhibitors.
Ford got the idea for the fair from the craft shows in his hometown of Russellville, Arkansas. “As a kid I loved that experience of being surrounded by so many creative people. It was very social. As an adult, I longed for that experience, and wanted to create a similar feeling but in a new, carefully curated context.” Ford is a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory and we’re longtime fans of his organic approach to interiors. (Have a look at his own place in The Designer Is In: Brad Ford at Home in NYC.)

And here’s our quiz with Brad about his favorite upstate haunts:
RM: Favorite shops?
RM: Vintage shops?
RM: Must-visit historical site?
BF: One of my favorite places to visit is Olana. It’s the ideosyncratic house of landscape painter Frederic Church, who founded the Hudson River School, and the property and the views are incredible.
RM: Where to dine?
BF: Definitely Gaskins in Germantown. I’m also addicted to the pizza at Westwind Orchard in Accord, NY, and one of my absolute favorite places on earth is the Stockade Tavern in Kingston. They make the best craft cocktails and their bar snacks are absolutely delicious, in particular their pickled egg served with Triscuits.
RM: Favorite garden shop?
BF: I really like Adam’s in Newburgh. It’s a grocery store, hardware store, and nursery. Definitely a one-stop shop.
RM: Entertainment venue?
BG: Bearsville Theater in Woodstock. They get really great bands.
RM: Artisans to know?
BF: I have so many it’s hard to play favorites, but a few in the area I really like are Josh Vogel from Blackcreek Mercantile, Christopher Kurtz in Kingston, Michael Robbins in Germantown, Jason Roskey from Fern in Hudson, and Jonah Meyer from Sawkille in Rhinebeck.
