Basilica Mini Farm & Flea:
Open Air Holiday Market
Thanksgiving Weekend
Friday, November 26 | 10AM – 5PM
Saturday, November 27 | 10AM – 5PM
$5 weekend admission, kids under 12 FREE

Co-presented with creative studio LikeMindedObjects.

The beloved Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market returns, this time mini and open-air to accommodate social distancing. This year, admission will be with timed entry tickets, though walk ups will still be accepted. Attendees can buy their tickets online for a discounted price and will be able skip the line at the event. 

After moving the event online in 2020 due to large gathering restrictions, the beloved Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market will once again take place in Basilica Hudson’s waterfront reclaimed factory this Thanksgiving Weekend.

To allow for increased social distancing, the market will host up to 50 vendors spread throughout Basilica Hudson and its campus. Basilica Hudson’s large doorways will also be kept open for constant air flow. Though most vendors will be stationed in the building, attendees are encouraged to think of the event as an outdoor market and dress warmly. Masks will be required when not eating or drinking.

As an alternative to Black Friday shopping, the market features a carefully-selected variety of makers, collectors and farmers that harnesses the spirit and beauty of the Hudson Valley. Set against the beautiful, industrial setting of Basilica Hudson’s 1880’s repurposed factory, it’s a perfect way to jump into the holiday season – especially with global supply chains disrupted due to COVID-19 – to find an extraordinary array of local, vintage and handmade gifts, representing the abundance and splendor of the Hudson Valley. 


Born Thanksgiving Weekend 2013 as an antidote to big box Black Friday, Basilica Farm & Flea is part timeless flea and farmer’s market and part 21st century craft and design fair. With over 10,000 square feet of raw space and over 100 local and independent vendors, Basilica Farm & Flea is designed to support and elevate the Hudson Valley’s creative economy and encourage sustainable commerce. 

Two markets are presented each year: Spring Market in May and Holiday Market during Thanksgiving weekend, co-curated and programmed with LikeMindedObjects.

Basilica Farm & Flea has become one of our largest events, welcoming 10,000 + attendees throughout the weekend. At each market, shoppers get the chance to connect with designers and makers in person, adding a memorable note to the pieces they buy and creating a lasting connection. With a ‘no barcode, no plastic wrap’ ethos and a love of vintage and recycled, locally-sourced agriculture and the beautifully handmade, Basilica Farm & Flea showcases the splendor of the Hudson Valley’s artisanal talents.
