As a special incentive for families with young children to shop the Market, the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum will be awarding a free annual Museum membership to any family who shops and makes purchases at any SIX market days from June 3 through July 15. Simply show your purchase to the Market Manager each week to record your visit, and soon you’ll be on your way to earning a year of family fun at the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum!
The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum is the first children’s museum in the entire country to open a public farmers market as a strategy to reduce food insecurity among the families it serves. “The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum is centrally involved in the revitalization efforts taking place along the Poughkeepsie Waterfront,” states Lara Litchfield-Kimber, Executive Director of the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum, which manages the Market. “The operation of this Market provides us with yet another way to support the City of Poughkeepsie and our region by making fresh food available to City residents and visitors, all while showcasing the agricultural bounty of local Hudson Valley farms.” Since 2017, it has become a national model for museums looking to increase their impact on their local communities.
The Poughkeepsie Waterfront Market is steps away from both the Poughkeepsie Train Station and two city parks, making the Market accessible by foot to City residents, families visiting the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum, tourists and commuters alike. The Pavilion that hosts the Market is fully covered, and offers public restrooms and free onsite parking at the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum during the Market hours.
