In the wake of the Coronavirus, food businesses are being forced to use different tactics to serve the community.

The North Fork is full of businesses trying out different options and ways to keep their customers happy.

Here are just a few unique ways we’ve seen it being done

Green Hill Kitchen – BBQ Quarantine Kit

The Greenport-based restaurant is offering a kit, full of three already-cooked meals that are ready to eat. With it comes four sides, some of which include spicy broccoli, BBQ beans, creamy slaw or hand-cut fries. Some of the mains to choose from are grilled garlic shrimp, Green Hill wings, honey brushed ribs or blackened Scottish salmon. The kits are available for takeout or delivery from Southold to East Marion, Shelter Island and Sag Harbor ($100 minimum order for Shelter Island and Sag Harbor, 24 hour notice for Sag Harbor). They will run you $80 for two or $160 for four and are available Wednesday through Sunday 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

North Fork Doughnut Company – The Mommy Package

This cleverly-named combo will get you a free cup of hot coffee delivered right to your driver’s seat with a purchase of any preselected, prepackaged half dozen or a dozen donuts. But don’t worry, you do not have to be a mom to qualify.

Sang Lee Outdoor Mini Market

In Peconic, Sang Lee Farms will be hosting their own little farmer’s market on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Don’t fret the grocery stores or settle for canned veggies. Pick up some of the fresh stuff like greenhouse-grown vegetables and greens, soups, smoothies, ready-to-eat salads, baked goods, local eggs and meats that they will have available. Peconic Gold Oysters, Pierpont Blossom Farm and the Ferm will also have tents there.
