Does it get any better than September on the East End? Without all those benefits and fundraisers to attend, we can finally enjoy some rest and relaxation! And what could be more relaxing than little shopping!
The timing couldn’t be better for Sag Harbor’s The Juicy Naam’s Ayurvedic Cleanse. It allows you to gently cleanse your system from a long summer of fun (and in my case, one too many glasses of rosé) with customized alkalizing juices, Kitchari meals and Ayurvedic herbs. It’s easy and delicious. Call 631-725-3030 or visit thejuicynaam.us for details. The Juicy Naam is open year-round at 51 Division Street in Sag Harbor.
If you’re hitting the beach this month, don’t forget that the sun is still quite powerful. Be sure to continue applying plenty of sunscreen. One of my favorite products just got a new package. Hampton Sun’s Sunless Tanning Gel now comes in a pretty, golden ombré tube. Happily, the product itself is still the same, reliable instant tan that I love! You just rub it in and you are TAN! Same nice scent too. Aloe and chamomile soothe and tone your skin while erythrulose (fermented red raspberry) brings about a fabulous shade. All Hampton Sun products are available locally and worldwide at hamptonsun.com.
With traffic waning, it’s also an especially ideal time to visit other towns. When was the last time you explored the North Fork? Hop in the car, do a little apple picking and enjoy some of the charming villages. You’ll want to stop in at The Pitted Olive, Jamesport’s newest store, for an olive oil and vinegar tasting adventure. It offers a tasting bar for olive oils, vinegars, assorted olives and olive tapenades from around the world. Also featured are drinking vinegars (healthy never tasted so good), artisan flavored salts, Himalayan salt blocks for cooking, a refill program for Ariston Greek olive oils and balsamic vinegars, as well as a variety of olive-themed gifts. Visit the website, thepittedolive.com, to view their delicious offerings, store hours and directions. The Pitted Olive is located at 1560 Main Road, Jamesport.
Take your culinary and scenic North Fork adventure to the next level and make Orient’s Four & Twenty Blackbirds popup your ultimate goal. With origins in Brooklyn, the bakery plans to stay open through December! Stop in for an amazing cup of Stumptown coffee and take home a freshly baked pie. Four & Twenty Blackbirds is located at 1010 Village Lane, next door to the post office, in Orient. Visit birdsblack.com for hours and deets!
Amid your travels, you’ll surely be stocking up on late summer’s harvest at the local farm stands and thus inspired to start cooking with your mouth-watering tomatoes. If you’re not already well-equipped with good cookware, stop in at Williams Sonoma and take a peek at the new All-Clad Thomas Keller TK Collection. Created by Chef Thomas Keller, this signature cookware uses three of All-Clad’s technologies: Copper Core, D5 and Tri-Ply. Brushed stainless-steel exterior and universal lids make for easy use. Williams Sonoma is located in the Bridgehampton Commons, 2044 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton. Call 631-537-3040 or visit williams-sonoma.com.
