Last Saturday, the Register-Star reported that Filli's Claverack Market was closing, after being in business for 57 years. The original tenant for 449 Warren Street was to be Filli's Fresh Market, a Hudson outpost of the Claverack Market, but after months of discussion with the Galvan Initiatives Foundation and hope in the community, that plan was abandoned a little more than a year ago.
The current tenant in discussion with the Galvan to take over the space is the Hawthorne Valley Farm Store. Since last fall, Hawthorne Valley has been researching the possibility of opening a store in Hudson and discussing locating the store at 449 Warren Street with Galvan, but it seems nothing is settled yet.
This past Thursday, according to an article that appeared in the Register-Star today, the Hawthorne Valley Association issued a press release announcing plans to expand the Hawthorne Valley Farm Store in Harlemville, but it seems a Hawthorne Valley store in Hudson is still on the radar. Martin Ping, executive director of the Hawthorne Valley Association, is reported to have said that a November opening of a store in Hudson is a possibility.
