Amber Waves Farm, Market & Cafe

Housed in the old Amagansett Farmers Market, Amber Waves Market offers a selection of fresh produce, pantry staples and hot meals. When picking up ingredients for a dinner spread, be sure to grab a coffee and pastry from the onsite bakery and café or an artisanal sandwich for an easy lunch. For 16 seasons, the 501(c)(3) non-profit farm has not only been stocking the market with fresh and locally-sourced produce, but educating the community on nutrition, farming practices and more.

Bloom

Interior View -  Bookhampton, Hamptons, New York

Bookhampton

There was once a Border’s located inside the Bridgehampton Commons but it shuttered a few years ago making Bookhampton, an independent bookshop with locations in Southampton and East Hampton, the South Fork’s only bookstore “chain.” Though the stores are not huge, the selection is fairly extensive and features titles from a wide range of categories, including non-fiction, classic and contemporary literature as well as children’s and young adult. Anything not in stock can always be ordered and throughout the summer, the stores host a number of author events and book discussion.

Canio’s Books

This famous used book store in Sag Harbor still hosts local author readings, and some are big, literary names since the area has been home to masters like Peter Matthiessen and James Salter and the late Kurt Vonnegut.
