At times, locally owned businesses in the Hudson Valley don't get enough recognition as they should. They not only bring business and excitement to our favorite areas but also authentic, homemade food options created with love.

Each county in the Hudson Valley is growing quickly. Over the past couple of years, there have been more people that have moved to the Hudson Valley than ever. We have watched homes get sold, properties taken over for development and an increase in cars on the roads.

We can all agree on one thing, living in the Hudson Valley can feel as if it is a dream. The 4 seasons, the outdoor and indoor activities, the scenery and historical sites allow residents to never feel bored. With neighboring towns and a short drive to New York City, it's understandable why more people want to live in the Hudson Valley.

However, with an increase in pricing, some Hudson Valley businesses retired, sold their company or even switched to another path. This makes us grateful for the locally owned businesses that are still afloat and can continue to feed us daily.

In Sullivan County, residents won't go thirsty with a new wine and spirits shop. In Ulster County, a new Instagram-worthy wine bar is now serving guests in uptown Kingston. In Dutchess County, a groovy tie dye shop opened for good vibe customers. A healthy, nationwide chain business is also set to open their doors in the Hudson Valley as well.

RoccoRoma even had a heartfelt message to share with the community on their special day. This was done on the Goshen, NY Facebook page.

"We started Roccoroma Goshen in 2003 in a tiny office on New Street. We sold wholesale to Italian Restaurants and Pizzerias from a warehouse in Long Island.


In 2008 we opened a small warehouse and retail store selling Italian groceries which eventually gave way to a Delicatessen and some prepared foods.


Mamma stopped in one day and she never left. She started cooking on hot plates then a small kitchen. Eventually we expanded the retail store and kitchen. We moved the wholesale to another location and the rest is history.


After 15 years through all the ups and downs we have never stopped supplying all of you with the best. Its an Honor to be part of your celebrations, life events and daily meals. 

Happy 15th Anniversary and Thank you all"

Eat Your Way Through The Hudson Valley With The Best Ice Cream

I have always enjoyed stopping by my favorite local ice cream shops and choosing a new flavor. Whether it's a hot fudge sundae, chocolate peanut butter ice cream in a cone, or an ice cream sandwich, count me in.

The Hudson Valley has strange ice cream flavors. From lemon poppyseed to thai iced tea and barn boots, there aren't any boring flavors in our area.

A 'Premiere' Hudson Valley treat shop was expanding their space during the winter months to prepare for a busy summer season.

Thankfully, we have a large selection of local ice cream shops to visit in the Hudson Valley.
