Can't wait to go to this annual event! It was wonderful last year - all of it. They seem to have the parking of cars under control - no traffic jams at all. Hot food booths were great! The GARLIC was amazing. Still planning on buying from my original garlic grower - Ron from Antolini Plantation (from Syracuse, NY area). Had a great conversation with him last year on planting and storing garlic and true to form his HUGE cloves lasted about a year!!!!!!! In fact he brought me around to the back of his booth and we had something to drink, bread and cheese together. What a great guy - I think he's 84 years old this year... been doing the Saugerties fest for 22 years and farming for most of his life. Sure hope he's there this year. Can't wait!
