  • Woodstock Times: Our first and probably best-known paper, providing an authentic and modern take on America's most famous small town.
  • Saugerties Times: Published since 1995, this paper covers a town on the up-and-up. With a lively mix of young and old, natives and transplants, liberals and conservatives, it's one of the most interesting places we cover.
  • New Paltz Times: A hugely popular newspaper covering one of the region's coolest towns. Known far and wide for its world-class outdoor recreation and huge state college, it's a community with a rich history, lively politics, bustling culture and breathtaking natural beauty.

Almanac Weekly is included in Ulster Publishing’s four newspapers – Woodstock Times, New Paltz Times, Saugerties Times & Kingston Times.
