The Hamptons Specialty

Specialty neighborhood
Amagansett Farmers’ Market
367 Main St., Amagansett
The Amagansett farmers' market, which occupies a beautiful series of old stalls near downtown, has transferred ownership a few times in the past few years, so we couldn't be more excited that it's finally found a home with Amanda and Katie of Amber Waves Farm. You'll be able to pick up their amazing produce right on-site, and they'll also have dry goods, cheeses, iced coffee, some prepared foods. Don't forget to pick up a bouquet on your way out.
Amber Waves Farm
375 Main St., Amagansett
Katie and Amanda established their Amagansett organic farm in 2009. Among their crops is their wheat, which they harvest and sell in wheat berry form or mill on the spot for their customers at the Montauk farmers' market. They’ve taken it one step further by partnering with a local baker to make their very own bread. Having reintroduced wheat into the East End, they’ve literally reinvented the meaning of “local bread.” They've got a great CSA, plus a sophisticated education program that teaches kids about growing food. If you're not in town long enough for the CSA, pick up their produce at the farmers' market, or from their farm stand.
Dylan’s Candy Bar
52 Main St., East Hampton
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. This summer, they're also selling DO, the customizable, safe-to-eat cookie dough you have to wait hours for in the city.
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.
