Shelter Island is a quiet retreat in the off-season and a vibrant, bustling destination for tourism during the summer. And visitors coming from the Hamptons or headed to the South Fork really have just one way of getting on and off the island — the South Ferry.

Established 30 years ago this March, The Market is both a village grocer, providing healthy food options and personal care products, as well as a café. Both areas of this Front Street shop offer organic ingredients and minimally processed (clean!) foods.

The Market was born from owner Shelly Scoggin’s desire to find a healthier way of living for her family. At the time she had a new baby on the way and finding a source for organic food options on the North Fork was nearly impossible. That’s when she knew it was the right time to open her market.

Today, you’ll find a wide variety of organic produce, vitamins, personal care products and gluten-free foods on the shelves. The Market’s menu is creative and spans breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as smoothies and desserts. We chatted with Scoggin in the corner of her café one afternoon at lunchtime and found out more about this gem of a health food store and eatery. (more…)
