Interesting food related activities near West Point?
Thanks for any help in advance. Attending a wedding next weekend at the Thayer Hotel at West point and we will have a fair amount of time to kill during the day. I am a chef in Boston and was hoping for any recommendations for interesting farms, markets, great wine stores, etc that I might find in the area. Not really looking for restaurants per se but if there are any great lunch spots that would be great. Again thanks for your time. Hopefully I didn't miss any obvious threads in the archive.
Not sure how much time your talking about but there is the CIA in Hyde Park about an hour away, I think they still do tours. The also have several restaurants there where the students cook/serve etc. If the wedding is on Saturday there should be Farmers Markets in the area, there are some across the river and south in Westchester but I'm sure there are some in that area also, try to google it. This isn't food related but West Point isn't far from Newburg which has a nice waterfront area that you can walk along, it's called Front Street so if it's a nice day you may want to consider that. I also know there are wineries in that area, unfortunately I don't know there names but maybe someone else can help with that. Good luck.
