Welcome to Sugar Loaf, NY - an Artisan Village
The hamlet of Sugar Loaf is a community of artisans, boutique shops, dining and a world class performing arts center all nestled under Sugar Loaf Mountain in picturesque Warwick Valley, Orange County, New York.
Surrounded by apple orchards, wineries and horse farms, the eclectic and charming village was transformed into a thriving crafts center in the 1970s by the hard work of a handful of dedicated artisans. Today, Sugar Loaf remains true to its heritage as the year round home to dozens of independent business men and women. Many of these artisans live and work in the original barns and buildings which date back to the 1700’s.
Sugar Loaf has an outstanding selection of handmade art, crafts and gifts. Our unique shops offer a broad range of artistic items from oil and acrylic paintings, water color, stained glass, black & white and color photography, pottery, antiques, jewelry, woodworks, candles, soap, sculpture and much much more.

Spend the day browsing though our wonderful collection of shops, bring a camera or sketch pad and create your own impressions, Sugar Loaf’s beautiful surroundings will release your creative energies!
