Fork & Anchor café and general store, known as East Marion’s go-to place to pick up goods made by other local purveyors, will soon roll out its own condiment line.
“We had the idea to start our own product line since we started and now it is finally here,” said co-owner Lucy Muellner.
The first product to hit the shelves is the store’s own apple-raisin chutney made with Wickham’s Fruit Farm apples.
While Fork & Anchor has been serving up the chutney on its signature turkey sandwich for years, this is the first time its been bottled for sale. The shop has teamed up with Bottlehouse Foods, a sister business of Shelter island’s Vine Street Café, to jar the chutney.
As versatile as it is tasty, the chutney can be used as a condiment on a cheese platter, a marinade for roasted chicken or with a curry, Muellner said.
By year’s end Fork & Anchor is looking to add two more flavors of chutney plus other condiments made with locally grown produce.
You can pick up a jar at Fork & Anchor, located at 8955 Main Road in East Marion ($11).
It is also available at Browder’s Birds’ table at the Riverhead Farmer’s Market on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2p.m. or at the Topping Rose House farmers market in Bridegehampton open on certain Saturdays from 11a.m. to 3p.m.
