Hutton Fare opens this weekend, July 21 and 22, with local vendors offering food, beverages and goods produced in the Hudson Valley.
MWest Holdings, owner of Hutton Brickyards, has upgraded the former industrial site since last summer, doubling the number of parking spaces to provide 1,000 spots, expanded rest-rooms, and added permanent bars, five dressing rooms, office space and a prep kitchen. They’ve also done some landscaping to “green up and soften” the look of the site, said CEO Karl Slovin. The site hosted Smorgasburg, which also revolved around food and craft vendors, in 2016 and 2017, but organizers of the Brooklyn-based festival decided against bringing it back this year.
A sampling of vendors includes the Grille Wagon, Ono Grinds Poke, Grounded, Oyster Party, Rosie’s Empanadas, Nancy’s Artisanal Ice Cream, Jane’s Ice Cream, Buns Burgers, Marylin’s Food Co., Farmstock, Oliver Kita Chocolatier, Bee Hollow Farm, Toma, Catskill Provisions and Tin Can Juicery. In addition to foods and beverages, you’ll be able to shop for jewelry, clothing, furniture and housewares, as well as play Japanese billiards, arches, dice, cornhole, ricochet and other activities in the games pavilion, provided by Upstate Jamboree.
Woodstock musician Simi Stone (taking time off from touring with David Byrne), Yard Sale and The Bailsmen will perform Saturday.
In addition to the food festival, the brickyard will host the return of “Field and Supply,” a high-end craft fair curated by New York City designer Brad Ford on Columbus Day weekend. The brickyard, said Slovin, has also added high end camping experiences — known as “glamping” to its offerings. MWest has partnered with Brooklyn-based Terra Glamping for the effort. The company provides roomy tents outfitted with queen-sized beds, carpets and furnishings along with equally luxurious dining and lounge accommodations. Slovin said the glamping company would allow the brickyard to host overnight guests for weddings and other events.
