Basilica Hudson co-presents with creative studio LikeMindedObjects the first-ever Basilica Farm & Flea Virtual Market, featuring a diverse selection of over 70 Hudson Valley based businesses, in place of its annual in-person Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market. Basilica Hudson will host the virtual market on its website to access more than 70 clickable vendors and products for purchase directly from each webshop. Additionally, Basilica Hudson will run a promotional campaign on social media to highlight participating vendors and will also conduct Instagram Live interviews with a diverse range of business owners.
“Missing out on a celebratory in-person ten-year anniversary season has been heartbreaking for Basilica, but it has also been a call to action and transformation,” said Melissa Auf der Maur, Basilica Hudson co-founder and director. “Being a platform for independent voices while fostering sustainable community and economy is central to our mission.”
To help businesses transition to online shopping, and with the support of the City of Hudson, Basilica Farm & Flea Virtual Market hosted an educational webinar and product photography session offered for free to participants.
