The Arts & Crafts Village of Sugar Loaf

Historic Sugar Loaf Village is nestled in scenic Warwick Valley, only 60 miles from New York City, and is an interesting mix of practicing artisans, eclectic shops and galleries. Established in the early 1700's, many of the buildings are still being used today.

Come and stroll our boardwalks, smell the aromas from the candle shop and restaurants. Be sure to pick up your free Visitor's Guide provided by our Chamber of Commerce, and don't forget to check our Calendar for upcoming village events, or visit the many apple orchards and wineries in our area.

The "Artisans of Sugar Loaf", the ASL, is a non profit organization representing a group of professional artists and craftspeople who live and work in this historic village. We are dedicated to preserving the historical and artistic traditions of our hamlet. We sponsor this website, and promoted Fine Arts Exhibits in 1999, 2000 and 2001, The Hambletonian Fine Arts Show & Competitions, which were open to fine artists and craftsmen in the tri state area. Our artisans and shop owners strive to encourage new artists and interesting shops to come to Sugar Loaf, put down some roots and join our community.

We are committed to maintaining our way of life for ourselves and for our children. We want Sugar Loaf to remain an oasis, a safe haven for people to visit and relax, and to enjoy our little slice of history.

Nestled in the heart of beautiful Warwick Valley, Sugar Loaf is a charming hamlet, surrounded by horse farms and apple orchards, brimming with history and architecture. About 58 miles from New York City, we are a village of working craftspeople, and can boast of over 50 galleries, studios and shops full of interesting and unusual hand made items.

Tired of malls? Come and walk along our boardwalks, smell the fragrance from the candle shop, visit our wonderful restaurants, sip our freshly ground coffee, and visit our wonderful shops and galleries.

Are you longing for unusual, personalized, excellent quality items that are not found anywhere else? Come visit us and discover that many of them are made right here! Many of the shops are owned and operated by the artists themselves! So, spend a day with us, and you will want to return again and again.
