Hudson Market on Main Opens as Part of College Culinary Center in Nyack

As part of the Rockland Community College Hospitality & Culinary Center, Hudson Market on Main in Nyack has opened for business.

The Market features a 45-seat café managed by Flik Hospitality with an assortment of baked goods, soups, salads and sandwiches. “The goal is for students to ultimately run and manage the café,” says Cris Spezial, Chair of Hospitality and Culinary Arts for Rockland Community College. “That means some of the food students make during their classes will be a part of the cafe’s offerings.”

In addition to breakfast and lunch items, Hudson Market on Main also features retail items from vendors sourced from the Hudson Valley, a key component of the college’s curriculum. A pop-up restaurant, also run by students, is planned for spring 2020.


The RCC Hospitality and Culinary Arts Center was created in response to the burgeoning growth in restaurants and tourism in the Mid-Hudson Valley and the resulting need for more qualified workers. The curriculum focuses on New York artisanal food, craft beverages and agriculture. It offers fast-track culinary arts certificate programs, workforce-ready training for veterans and under-served populations, a state-of-the-industry teaching kitchen and now, an open-to-the-public market store with freshly prepared foods for dine-in or take-out.

The cafe is open seven days a week beginning at 7:30am.
