Pop-Up Farmers Market
Share the Harvest Farm will hold an indoor pop-up market at St. Luke's Church on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Along with the typical market fare, there will be prize raffles and music by Chris Klein. More than 20 vendors will participate, donating 10 percent of their profits to Share the Harvest Farm, a nonprofit that donates more than half of its harvest to partners feeding the hungry. 

At the market, expect hot soup to go, breads and pastries, artisanal chocolate bunnies, jams, mushrooms, smoked fish and spreads, rice balls, spring bouquets, and gluten-free items. There will also be crafts such as candles, soap, and jewelry. 

"Delicious Ireland"
On Saturday, the Bridgehampton Museum will host Margaret M. Johnson, who will present her new book "Delicious Ireland." While some may find the title an oxymoron, the samples she will be offering made from recipes in her book sound quite tempting. Along with stories of her travels, she will serve up a goat cheese tart with red onion marmalade, a blue cheese and roasted fig tartine, and a mixed leaf salad with mustard vinaigrette. The dessert offerings will be lemon loaf with rosemary drizzle and rhubarb and elderflower crumble.

The program, which takes place in the newly unveiled Nathaniel Rogers House, runs from 1 to 2 p.m. and costs $20. Tickets, which are limited to 30, can be reserved through the website.

Happy Times in Sag
Lulu Kitchen and Bar in Sag Harbor will be extending its 25-percent-off happy hour pricing on wines and other bar offerings to the dining room as well. The happy hour menu will be available Monday through Friday at lunch and evenings from 5 to 6:45.

Menu options include Peeko oysters, blistered shishito peppers, raclette croquette, grilled flatbread, and mussels a la plancha. Specialty cocktails such as You Are Lulu, Tumbleweed Mule, Smoke n' Fire, La Coupole, and Dali's Harvest are also part of the deal.

One Long Table
Outstanding in the Field, a national organization that serves up farm-to-table menus on a long snaking communal table, will return to the South Fork on Aug. 31. Tickets, which typically sell out far in advance, are now on sale. The dinner will be served, once again, at Fireplace Farm in Springs, perched on a bluff overlooking Gardiner's Bay. 

Although a chef for the dinner has not been announced, previous dinners have featured Jason Weiner of Bridgehampton's Almond restaurant at the helm and a team from Elaia Estiatorio.
