Exciting news! A farmer’s market has opened in my town! I am a huge fan of fresh Long Island produce (who isn’t?) so I am thrilled to have these newly picked fruits and veggies at my fingertips every Sunday. Besides the typical produce you expect to find at any farmer’s market, I was pleased to see a North Fork winery offering a few tastes, a Southampton bakery, and a whole stand of pickled produce.
