Hey East Enders! Hope you’re ready, because we’ve got some great deals for you this holiday weekend. With pop-up shops galore and markets of all kinds, this is one Memorial Day weekend you will not want to miss. Happy shopping!
The Amagansett Farmers Market is open again! This Friday, May 27, the Amagansett Farmers Market welcomes you to check out their variety of local and regional produce and products. They’ve got some of the best the East End has to offer, from Amber Waves Farms to East End Apiaries to Josephine’s Feast! (Strawberry Rhubarb preserves, yes please!) The Market will also be serving coffee by Hampton Coffee, smoothies by Solutions Organic Juice Bar, and Joe and Liza’s Ice Cream. Sunday May 29 will feature a live acoustic set by local artists Job Potter and Friends, and afternoon tastings of local beverages. The Amagansett Farmers Market is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. only on weekends until July, at which point it will be open seven days a week. Find it at 367 Main Street in Amagansett. Visit amagansettfoodinstitute.org for more information.
The Sag Harbor Farmers Market operates on Bay Street every Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through October 29. But this Saturday two of its founding members—Dale Haubrich and Bette Lacina—“Dale & Bette’s Farm”—will be staying “down on the farm” for their blow-out yard sale. The sale runs Friday, May 27 through Monday, May 30, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1726 Sag Harbor-Bridgehampton Turnpike (right next to Bay Burger). If you need a drawerful of old kitchen utensils, a basket, or some old tools, this is the place for you. Of course fresh, organic veggies and preserves will also be on offer, along with a host of vintage collectibles. Very “hippies homesteading in the Hamptons.” See you there!

If you’re hoping to head to the beach this weekend, have we got the shoes for you. Sperry recently released a new Jaws-themed shoe line, featuring images of the iconic summer movie poster on boat shoes and sneakers. The shoes come wrapped in delightful white and faux blood-stained tissue paper, sure to freak you out the first time you see it. So show your Jaws pride (because Long Islanders know the truth: It may have been filmed in Martha’s Vineyard, but Jaws was actually set in the Hamptons!). Buy your pair at sperry.com.
