FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK, NY

March 22, 2016

ESCAPEMAKER OPENS
AGRITOURISM POP UP SHOP
AT THE SOUTH STREET SEAPORT


EscapeMaker.com, NYC’s guide since 2000 to
local getaways, opens the first ever pop up shop dedicated to local farm, winery and brewery getaways, running March 31st-April 24th within the historic Fulton Stall Market at the South Street Seaport.

Presented by Amtrak, the EscapeMaker Pop Up Shop located inside the Fulton Stall Market on
207A Front Street, will be open to the public Thursdays and Fridays (12:00pm-6:00pm) and Saturdays and Sundays (11am-5pm), March 31st through April 24th. Visitors can pick up info on green travel, farm escapes, apple picking, wine and craft brew trails and local getaway packages to inspire them to start planning their vacations.

Drawing a 250-mile travel radius around New York City, EscapeMaker offers getaway ideas within a few hours of New York City by car or by train with a focus on farms, wine and brew trails and culinary tourism. The shop and events presenting sponsor is Amtrak, encouraging taking mass transit to local destinations to lower one’s carbon footprint. Agricultural sponsors include The New York Apple Association, Vermont Tourism of Vermont and Dutchess Tourism, Westchester Tourism, Corning & the Southern Finger Lakes, Sullivan County Visitor’s Association and the Long Island Convention & Visitor’s Bureau – all within New York State.

Sunday, April 10th – Local Craft Beer, Cider & More
Sunday, April 17th – Local Wine, Cheese & More
Sunday, April 24th – Local Farms & Family Getaways

All events run from 11am-5pm and will feature food and beverage samples from local producers, live music, presentations by local farmers, winemakers and brewmasters and information on local vacations, where to go apple picking and visit a farm.

After five years of hosting a one-day Local Food & Travel Expo that focused on green getaways, the first of its kind in the country, EscapeMaker’s founder, Caylin Sanders, wanted another challenge. “A pop up shop was a natural transition for us. Our annual expo in Brooklyn drew thousands of people and was very successful, but we decided that the 1-day format of a consumer food and travel show was too limiting, ” says Sanders. “People want to sample food and wine and to support their local producers, but they also want to connect and share their travel experiences, bring their kids and families, as well as actually book weekend getaways with knowledgeable experts. This new venue gives us the opportunity to create that community dynamic,” comments Sanders.

EscapeMaker’s Pop Up Shop serves as a promotional program of the Fulton Stall Market, an initiative of the South Street Seaport District. Fulton Stall Market is a marketplace for local foods connecting farmers and producers with the growing Lower Manhattan community. Located in the historic district, where the City’s markets began in the 1700’s, it’s a first step toward development of a year-round indoor public market for New York City featuring local products and educational programming celebrating the Seaport District’s vibrant market history. Already the market has been offering educational programming and a CSA to local residents through partner Local Roots.

Passersby can also tour the new photography exhibit, “Organic,” based on the book by Francesco Mastalia. Twenty-one striking black and white 10-foot daguerreotype oversized photos of Hudson Valley farmers line the building around Beekman and Front Streets. Each photo features a scannable QR code that links viewers to EscapeMaker.com and more information on how to visit or buy from them.

Bob Lewis, Fulton Stall Market’s lead consultant comments, “It’s exciting to not only put our farmers and producers in the context of agritourism but also to be able to offer quality family-friendly events to our neighbors and Seaport community."

After April 2016, EscapeMaker’s agritourism tents can once again be found stocked with local getaway information in Union Square and various outdoor Greenmarkets in Manhattan and Brooklyn as part of a marketing partnership, solidified earlier this year with GrowNYC to promote Greenmarket farmers with on-site farm stores and experiences and local agritourism destinations. EscapeMaker’s new website is also slated to launch in Summer 2016.

1-2 HOURS FROM NYC
Westchester County is a food lover’s paradise and boasts a surprising blend of experiences. It is home to bustling shopping areas, meandering parkways, forested nature preserves, hiking trails, historic castles, estates and mansions, and – perhaps most surprisingly – thriving agricultural enterprises offering authentic farm experiences. Westchester always puts fresh and innovative on the menu. For more information on area hotels, farms, breweries and agricultural experiences within one hour of New York City, click here for info!
1-2 HOURS FROM NYC
Sullivan County’s breweries, wineries, and distilleries are the talk of the town! Less than 2 hours from NYC there’s a strong farm to table and craft beverage industry brewing in the Catskills. Much to the delight of visitors, there are 16 towns and villages where you can savor a gourmet meal, or grab a grass fed burger. Before you do, check out the sweet scene at any of a number of sugar shacks for great homemade maple syrup. And don’t miss sipping on a hand-crafted Peace Vodka, a Trout Town Amber Ale, or a Cabernet Franc either. Click here for info!
1-3 HOURS FROM NYC
Discover the Long Island Craft Beverage Trail. Along the way you’ll find three dozen wineries for tastings and tours. Breweries featuring complex blends of hops and flavors blended to frothy perfection. And local hand-crafted spirits distilled with local potatoes and water from ancient aquifers. There the ‘catch of the day’ was likely hauled in that morning from the waters off the Island shores and comes paired with vegetables from a nearby farm stand. The passion of place is palpable. Local. Authentic. Delicious. Click here for info!
2-3 HOURS FROM NYC:
Dutchess County is the cure for cabin fever with live theater (3/4-3/6: Sesame Street Live – Let’s Dance!, 3/20: Experience Hendrix, 3/4-3/13: Angels in America)!

Laugh It Up! at Mahoney’s or hear live music at Daryl’s House Club (3/9: Rickie Lee Jones) or the Towne Crier Club (3/10: Buckwheat Zydeco). Click here for info!
4-5 HOURS FROM NYC
People crave more. More flavor. More styles. More of an experience. That’s why craft brewers, hard cider-makers and distillers in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes created "Craft Your Adventure," a self-guided, master crafted beverage tour and collection of craft beverage experiences. Whether you crave beers from NY’s "Best
Craft Brewery," events like the Heritage Village Craft Bev Expo and the Finger Lakes Beer Festival or beer-themed getaway packages, "Craft Your Adventure" is your ticket for fun. Click here for info!

GETAWAY ALERT!
NEW TRAIL TO FOLLOW!
Haunted History Trail of New York State
EXPLORE THE HAUNTED HISTORY TRAIL OF NEW YORK STATE
IF YOU DARE!
Dear Escapemakers – experience over 60 haunted inns, restaurants, museums, public spaces, ghost tours and more across 400 miles of New York State. You can explore the trail by the regions you would like to visit, or by the experiences you would like to seek out. To learn more about all the trail locations, visit here.

To request a free 2016 Haunted History Trail of New York State brochure, click here.

HAUNTED HOTELS & INNS

Most of us as children checked under our beds for monsters. For those of you who didn’t have to sleep with the light on, here’s an opportunity to sate your curiosity. These inns are reputed to have ghostly residents that checked in – but never left. Click here if you’re brave enough to stay overnight at one of these places. 

HAUNTED RESTAURANTS & PUBS

Instead of making a dinner reservation for two…maybe you should make it for three in case a ghostly visitor decides to join your table! You never know who or what you’ll experience at our haunted dining locations. Grab a bite to eat and hear patrons and staff tell you their stories. 

GHOSTS HUNTS
Searching for ghosts can be fun AND terrifying. Some of these hunts allow you to be the expert-bringing your own equipment and giving you time alone with the spirits. Others allow you to search as a group-taking pictures, comparing notes and listening for anything that goes *bump* in the night. Click here
to see which places you can explore.

 

GUIDED TOURS
Many haunted spaces offer guided tours that point out where paranormal activity has occurred. Or they tell stories of ghostly apparitions and tragic deaths. With a guide, you’ll be given the haunted past of the location and may experience new sightings.
CREEPY LOCATIONS

There are several locations on the trail that are public and just plain spooky. Mysterious locations, scary cemeteries, weird public spots and more. Here is
a list of creepy locations that you can visit.
