Colleen McCaffery of Mattituck has been practicing yoga for more than a decade. But she only began pursuing the tradition more seriously after a multiple sclerosis diagnosis in March 2015.

She found the ancient practice and its focus on balance to be a welcome antidote for the debilitating disease, which affected her equilibrium. That, coupled with medication and a modified diet incorporating fermented foods, has helped her manage her symptoms.

“It’s the best medicine,” she said. “Because I do yoga, I am in touch with my body. My balance is a little better. I am not tired as much.” (more…)

The equestrian community is getting a new home on the North Fork.

The 11-unit Estates at Royalton development is breaking ground on Cox Neck Road in Mattituck. These houses will be connected by a bridle path to a state-of-the-art equestrian center, for horse lovers and non-horse lovers alike.

“This is the first place of its kind on Long Island,” said developer Richard Behmoiram. “The North Fork is agrarian, so it’s a nice fit; the horse community fits into the farming community.” (more…)

For those seeking fresh seafood, a prepared meal or prime-cut meats, the Mattituck Marketplace is now the perfect place to grab all three.

Following a four-month renovation project that is nearing completion, the supermarket has added new departments and expanded on the offerings of the former Waldbaum’s.

“The store didn’t carry products full-time and part-time residents of the [North Fork] wanted,” said Richard Grobman, president of Dan’s Supreme Supermarkets — the chain that owns Mattituck Marketplace. “Those people, the customers and the non-customers, want more of a selection in organic and specialty in all departments: meat, produce, dairy and groceries throughout the store.”

Local seafood restaurant Buoy One, which has locations in Riverhead and Westhampton, will run the fresh fish and seafood department, said Grobman said.

Cooking will be done in-store to create prepared foods for shoppers to bring home and serve.

“More and more people are looking for more leisure time,” he said. “They’re not wanting to spend time in the kitchen, they want more prepared food to buy and put on the table. And they want fresh fish instead of the usual supermarket items. So we try to give them what we thought they would want.”

Buoy One general manager Denyse Baggot said the entire menu will be available at the supermarket and will feature clambakes, sushi and shrimp cocktail. The company has recently begun bottling glazes, sauces and seasonings, which will also be sold there.
