Before the Hamptons became a luxury destination, it was almost entirely farmland. Today, farm stands have become gathering grounds, a place to greet the community while picking fresh produce.
Here’s a list of our favorites to choose from.
Situated off Montauk Highway in Sagaponack, you might even find the Barefoot Contessa herself, Ina Garten, picking up produce. It’s a must visit for beautiful tomatoes, melons, corn, radishes, arugula, and giant sunflowers. If you get there on the early side, grab a fresh baguette from Blue Duck Bakery before they sell out.
