Pots and pans, and basics for cooking like olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, catsup, butter, sugar, Kurick coffee machine and coffee and tea and little creamers. Dishes are done in the old farm sink in the bathroom near by, so as not to destroy the flow of the antique space.

SHOPPING FOR FOOD:
In town the first shopping center on the right is STOP N SHOP PLAZA. Here is a Bank of America with an ATM. A fabulous, inexpensive and great health food store called HEALTH AND NUTRITION, on the right at the end. STOP N SHOP is actually really nice, and has lots of organic stuff and even meat. They have a whole aisle of gluten free products.
MEAT- the best place is JACK’S MEATS right in town of New Paltz on the right. He has local, grass fed beef, organic chicken and other stuff.
FISH- GADELETTO’S MARKET that is in the Cherry Hill Market across from Shop n Stop. Fresh fish, and also a restaurant.
There are farm markets in each town, usually over the weekend.
Two of my favorite local farm markets that are open all the time are
WALKILL VIEW FARMS just outside of the town of NP over the bridge near the Ridge. On the left. They also have potted plants and flowers. Not organic but local and yummy. They have fresh, mozzarella, fresh pasta, pesto, Jane’s Icecream, and baked goods too.
ANd JENKINS & LUKINS orchard way further up towards the Mountain on the left. They have fabulous apples (esp in fall) great local produce, pick your own raspberries and strawberries, and baked goods, frozen local meats, etc. Interaction with GuestsIt's a very private separate Barn.
