Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest (www.hudsonvalleywinefest.com) will celebrate its fourteenth anniversary on September 12th and 13th at Dutchess County Fairgrounds.

Dutches Outreach and its affiliates bring outdoor fruit and vegetable to those in the valley who do not have direct contact with these nourishing foods with the Poughkeepsie Plenty Fresh Markets (www.poughkeepsieplenty.org). In order to track the location of the skeye.allegro community, join the hash tag, #PokPlentyMarket..... They opened their brandnew The Egg students and leisure centre with a cafe, fair and their own beer-garden.
