The East End Adds Three Farmers Markets in 2011

Tomorrow, the newly sprouted ROUTE 27 FARMERS MARKET opens in Amagansett with Shelter Island, also a new farmers market on Long Island's East End not far behind. Riverhead's newest market at Atlantis opened recently.

According to Dan's Papers, there will be 20 vendors to start in Amagansett. Interested farmers and food purveyors should call The ROUTE 27 market manager, Michael Vignapiano,  917-670-1261.
 

These new markets brings the total number of farmers markets on the South Fork to 9 (possibly 10 pending confirmation from the Chamber of Commerce that the Montauk Farmers Market will reopen this season)!!!
