Very expensive -$6/qt. of strawberries- and you’d better eat what you buy within 24 hours or it’s moldy time.


I’m so happy this is back up and running again! It definitely feels like summertime now.

Does anyone remember the clean energy vendor that was there? I want to look them up online, but can’t remember their name. Thanks!

The fresh apple juice blends were simply the best thing I drank all year! The Chardonnay from the North Fork vinyard was superb! I made a seafood pasta sauce with half of the bottle…garlic, shallots, butter, EVOO, S&P, oregano…sautee…toss in mussels, clams…add wine…steam 3 min…add shrimp…2 min more…chopped parsely….onto linguine….HEAVEN.
