50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day: Shop at a Local Farmers Market


Memorial Day weekend draws ever closer, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few days on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #7: Shop at a Local Farmers Market

The East End has an abundance of farmers markets to choose from between Memorial Day and Labor Day. While the scene is quieter in the pre-season, there are still several top-notch markets up-and-running for locavores to check out.

Get a taste of the Hamptons and North Fork spring bounty, with produce such as radishes, turnips, salad greens and more for sale from local growers. Eggs, meat and wine are also available. It doesn’t get any more “shop local” and “eat local” than this!
