Market on the Move
Of the East Hampton Farmers Market, Kate Plumb, the co-manager of the East End Farmers Markets, said in an email, "We might well be called the nomadic farmers market, somewhat of an oxymoron for farmers, who most certainly are attached to the ground they farm."

After many years in Nick and Toni's parking lot on North Main Street, in 2020, needing more space, the market relocated for a time to the Calvary Baptist Church on 60 Spinner Lane, a right turn off Springs-Fireplace Road just past the Cookery if you're heading into Springs. 

While the market has been in five different places in and around Herrick Park in East Hampton Village since then, it is now back on Spinner Lane, "and we were then and are now grateful to the church for letting us in." It is open every Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with plenty of parking and no downtown traffic to contend with.

Among its returning vendors are the Perfect Pickle, Regina's Farmstand, North Fork Fish, Mecox Cheese, Arlotta Olive Oil, Backyard Bloom Flowers, Annie's Ginger Elixir, Newlight Bread, the Turmeric Store, South Fork Bakery, Get Joy Dog Treats, the Cookery, Twisted Hallah Bread, and Sharp Cat Knives.

Relatively new vendors are Phil's Ocean to Earth vegetables, Hannah's Boa Vida Goods, with freshly made vegetable juices and protein balls, Kira's gluten free cookies, and Flutter Labs, which makes chemical-free household products.

Free concerts are also returning to Gosman's Dock, starting Tuesday at 6 p.m. with the Nancy Atlas Project, and continuing on Tuesdays throughout the summer. Subsequent shows will feature the HooDoo Loungers, Zanti Misfits, the Paul Bollenback Quartet, Holiday Ramblers, the Bill O'Connell Quartet, and Real East End Brass.

Small Bites
Bostwick's on the Harbor, on Gann Road in Springs, is now open seven days a week from 5 p.m.

Naturally Good, a health food café and store on Montauk's Main Street will be serving dinner on Fridays and Saturdays from 5:30 to 8:30 all summer. The menu includes starters like an heirloom tomato and burrata salad, watermelon and feta salad and sustainable shrimp cocktail. Among the mains are fish en papillote, St. Louis-style ribs, crispy tofu, and a portobello burger. Reservations are not required.
