Today was a beautiful Sunday in the Hudson Valley! And I had a great time checking out Hastings-on-Hudson and the Hastings Flea.

A few months ago, Ilana contacted me and told me about the Hastings Flea — a fun fleamarket she organizes in one of the Hudson River towns, Hastings-on-Hudson.

Today was the perfect day to check it out. I had never been to Hastings-on-Hudson before, and it’s only 40 minutes away from Katonah.

Hastings Flea happens every second Sunday from April-November, 10-4pm.

It showcases the Hudson Valley’s incredible talent and taste — the best artists, vintage furniture and clothing collectors, handmade jewelry, and craft makers.

055aThen I found the diner — it’s just a few doors down from Urban Renewal — and had coffee and a baked potato with broccoli for only $6.55. That’s a total bargain here in Westchester.

057aI’ll definitely visit Hastings-on-Hudson and the Hastings Flea again — and the next time I’ll bring my two men. They missed out on all the fun in this charming river town! But they had their own fun: they went to hit golf balls.

What do you think I bought? Let’s see if you

Oh Dagmar, this post of Hastings-on-the-Hudson was a visit to a Village that I drove through everyday on my way to high school in Tarrytown in the 60’s. Such a quaint and lovely little place. The Hudson Valley is magnificent and the view of the Palisades is beautiful.
