Peter's Picks

 

I have picked out some Hudson Valley products that I find to be of exceptional quality. I do not get paid for these listings. I list them simply because I like them and use them. All companies can ship orders. Where possible a website link has been established.

 

 

 

We could call our daughter Peter Pamela a "Hudson Valley Product" in the sense that she grew up in the Valley. If you are interested in Acting/Directing/Life Coaching, please visit her website at

(Her parents are proud...)

 Alternative Baker

 in Rosendale, NY; (845) 658 3355

 

This bakery knows its bread. It also makes products, such as sugar-free or wheat-free, for special diets. My favorites are their baquettes and pumpkin muffins, but the pound cake and lemon cake are standouts as well.
