Savor the Bounty: Explore East End
Farms and Markets

Autumn is officially here and the East End farmstands and markets take on a special charm. The fall season brings a cornucopia of local delights, where the crisp air is filled with the enticing aroma of freshly harvested produce. Farmers proudly display their bountiful harvests, offering an array of seasonal vegetables, artisanal cheeses, freshly pressed apple cider, and homemade pies.

It is a great time to come together to celebrate the harvest and support local growers. The East End’s farms provide not only an opportunity to savor the flavors of the season but also a chance to connect with the rich agricultural heritage of the region in a setting that captures the essence of autumn’s beauty.

Explore the farmlands and drop by a market or farmstand on the East End in one of our towns (East Hampton, Montauk, Riverhead, Shelter Island, Southampton and Southold).
