Basilica Hudson is excited to host the Basilica Farm & Flea *Virtual* Holiday Market in partnership with LikeMindedObjects. Due to COVID-19, we’re unable to host our typical large-scale market indoors. We’ll miss seeing our loyal vendors and thoughtful shopper community in person, but are thankful to have a way to stay connected. You can still support vital small businesses through your holiday shopping – locally and ONLINE!

In preparation for the virtual market, Elise McMahon of LikeMindedObjects and photographer Angelina Dreem teamed up for a product and portrait photography shoot offered for free to our small business community, hosted in the factory halls of Basilica Hudson (socially distanced and in compliance with NYS regulations). Elise and Angelina have also been cruising around the Hudson Valley visiting the farms, workshops and storefronts of some of our lovely participants to further tell the stories of why we should still be shopping locally this gift giving season, even when shopping online.

Earlier this month, LikeMindedObjects also led a webinar joined by e-commerce experts Alex Petraglia of the Hudson Business Coalition and Hillary France of Hudson Wylde, as well as photographer Angelina Dreem of Dreem Reality Inc, to help remove the barriers of entry for the local business community who primarily sell at in-person markets. Watch the recorded workshop here!
