Enjoy the fresh bounty of the Hamptons from these inspired vendors.



Wishbone Farms

By Nancy Kane

At Wishbone Farms, restaurateur Josh Lebowitz offers curated delectables made by executive chef Eva Pesantez to pick up for at the beach or après beach. Thoughtfully prepared, ready-to-eat meals for any palate and any occasion allow you to enjoy the weekend knowing the fridge is well stocked. The best homemade pita chips, truffle potato chips, candy by the jar and more add to the creative and ever-changing selection of sandwiches, salads and sides as well as gourmet platters made to order to please a houseful of guests. The third-wave coffee bar will tempt you with honey lattes and hibiscus iced tea. 54 Hampton Rd., Southampton

Hen of the Woods

Down the street, Hen of the Woods offers pantry staples and fresh, responsibly sourced exotic produce: chanterelle, morel and porcini mushrooms, as well as wild wasabi root, Oishii berries and locally foraged spruce tips. You will find caviar, oysters and the best culinary products that proprietors Suzy Yang and Jonathan Bernard can ethically source. Their farmers and purveyors provide items ranging from handmade French butter from Bordier, Scola’s Scallops (Montauk), uni (sea urchin), spiny lobsters and sustainable seafood from Sea Stephanie Fish to local Little Fork Vinegar. 48 Hampton Rd., Southampton

Hamptons Aristocrat

Louisa and Lexi of Hamptons Aristocrat Cookshop & Prepared Food Market pivoted brilliantly to provide for their local clients when events were on hold. At the Cookshop market, a brick-and-mortar extension of their Hamptons Aristocrat, you can pick up dinner for two 12 with locally inspired fresh foods by the pound. Try their hyper-local cuisine with specialties such as Ricotta & Lemon Homemade Tortellini Salad, Wagyu Whiskey-Braised Pastrami Brisket, Old Bay Poached Shrimp, and celebration-ready cakes and pies. Sheet pan suppers, a market exclusive that feeds four, start at $45 and include a protein and two sides. Party-ready packages include the Sliced Steak & Lobster Bake or the Starboard Brunch (deviled eggs included!). 87 Sunset Ave., Westhampton Beach

Spring Close Farm

Former Hollywood stylist Harry Pinkerton found his true calling at Spring Close Farm. Taking over last fall, he worked the land and opened this season with a farm stand and storefront that sell mostly homegrown organic veggies and fruits such as zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, peaches and more. Pick up farm-grown fresh-cut flowers in addition to local cheeses, granola, fresh-baked breads, pastries, pies and honey—he’s also a beekeeper. 92 Spring Close Hwy., East Hampton

La Ferme at Bhumi Farms

Taking over beloved Bhumi Farms, Alimentari Flâneur teamed up with DADA Daily and Ruby Hibiscus Water to open La Ferme at Bhumi Farms, and the collaboration has proven fruitful. Drawn to the “super soil” of Farmer Frank, the partners maintained the integrity of the farm stand and added their own whimsy to offer surrealist Mediterranean-inspired fresh produce as well as items you wouldn’t expect at a farm stand: panettone, candles, gems. Pick the perfect hostess (or goddess) offering from Roman columns and busts laden with Mediterranean figs, medjool dates from Israel, napkin rings, exotic honey, and DADA Vegan Milk Chocolate Elderberry Boob Truffles. Swing by Saturdays après-beach for live music and special pop-ups. 1241/2 Pantigo Rd., East Hampton

NYC’s favorite Italian restaurant, Il Buco, has opened a restaurant “by the sea.” Il Buco al Mare features a small adjacent market with Italian favorites like imported olive oil; tinned fish from the Iberian Peninsula; ancient grain focaccia with olive, garlic scape, labneh and mustard greens; burrata, cherries and pistachio pesto; local seafood and more. Vanilla panna cotta with 10-year aged balsamic vinegar makes for the perfect ending. You’ll feel like you’re in Capri. 231 Main St., Amagansett

Milk Bar Pop-Up at Gurney’s

To satisfy your sweet tooth, visit Milk Bar Pop-Up at Gurney’s Star Island. Treats are available at the pop-up store and at Il Forno, the property’s Italian pizzeria and cafe, as well as at Gurney’s Montauk at the grab-and-go store, OG Coffee & Juice, and guests can request desserts, such as cookies in a tin or the classic birthday cake, to be waiting in their room upon check-in. A signature seasonal flavor, Strawberry Shortcake soft-serve, is available all summer. 32 Star Island Rd., Montauk
