I checked out a brand new store in Red Hook called Living Eden recently. The co-owners Bobbi Jo Forte and Bonnie Schweppe were both there, and their enthusiasm for the fair trade, made-in-the-USA, gourmet goodies they sell is contagious. (Watch out or you may end up buying a lot of cute stuff you didn't plan on buying!)
There are organic cotton shirts with foreign names with their meaning on them and gluten-free play-dough in their small kid's section. Tucked away in a side room is a gluten-free market, with shelves of super healthy gourmet gluten-free items. This beautiful locket with a local map got great buzz on the Hudson Valley Good Stuff page. It's a fun store for browsing and gift shopping. Stop in and check out Living Eden next time you're in Red Hook.
