East Hampton Specialty
68 Newtown Ln., East Hampton
Carissa Waechter is a familiar face on this skinny stretch of Long Island. Her cookies, cakes, and pickled sourdough rye bread (the starter has been going since 1999) have been gracing the tables of year-round residents and New York blow-ins for years.

The East Hampton outpost of Dylan Lauren's bright, graphic candy shop is a go-to for housewarming gifts, especially when you're hoping to get on the good side of your younger hosts. The Hamptons shop also has a summery assortment of pool and beach accessories, like candy-shaped pool floats, striped beach towels, frisbees, and adorable goggles decorated with plastic sprinkles.

Tracy Anderson at The Golden Pear Café

This summer, Tracy has curated a menu of smoothies available at all four cafe locations, including Southampton, East Hampton, Sag Harbor and Bridgehampton. Organic, gluten and fructose-free, each blend is mixed with her patented protein powder, ideal for pre/post workout nutrition and detoxing.
East Hampton Gourmet (Closed)
66 Newtown Ln., East Hampton
East Hampton Gourmet has been around for a little over 20 years and its not difficult to understand why. In addition to their catering, which is the perfect solution if you don’t want to cook, they also offer curb-side pickup. They have delicious prepared foods (including frozen dim sum), as well as delectable, gluten-free lentil crackers, which are so good with their lentil pâté. The turkey chili, Chinese chicken salad, and crab cakes are all perfection.
100 Pantigo Pl., East Hampton
This has got to be one of the greatest bagels on Long Island. Lox, lots of cream cheese varieties... There's not much else we need to say.
105-107 Newtown Ln., East Hampton
Perfect sandwiches, soups, cookies and snacks. Open 7 days a week at long last. Try the turkey meatloaf sandwich. There is also a location in Amagansett.
Round Swamp Farm Market
184 Three Mile Harbor Rd., East Hampton
This family-run market, located on an East Hampton farm that's been in the family for nine generations, sells their own produce along with fresh fish, and their own baked goods and deli items. Their Bridgehampton outpost offers the same fare as the original, including the pies, which are amazing.
85 Springs Fireplace Rd., East Hampton
This cozy natural health food store and restaurant is a great respite when you're looking for a break from fried clams. Their menu offers juices, smoothies, and clean salads and entrees, with 3- to 10-day juice cleanses all year round. In the spring and fall, they put together Ayurvedic solid food cleanses, which are kind of the perfect start (or end) to what can be an indulgent summer season. Photos: Jennifer Satinsky
