Montgomery Place Orchards ~ Red Hook, NY - North Country Rambler
Montgomery Place Orchards gets my vote for the prettiest farm stand in the Hudson Valley. Situated on Route 9G just north of the village of Rhinebeck, this picturesque market becomes a destination each summer for shoppers searching for local fresh produce and dairy products from area creameries. My absolute favorite time to visit is in autumn, when the shelves are adorned with dozens of traditional and heirloom varieties of freshly picked apples, and piles of colorful gourds and winter squash and pumpkins galore.
