The Greenport Farmers Market is heading indoors.

The not-for-profit market, which was founded in 2011, will open in its new First Street location next month, allowing it to continue throughout the winter for the first time.

“A lot of farmers have winter produce and goods that they would like to sell,” said Greenport Farmers Market president Dorothy Catapano, who also owns Catapano Farms in Southold. “It is a great opportunity for the village, our local farmers and community artisans, because it gives us a place to sell our stuff and it gives people another reason to come to Greenport.” (more…)

There’s a slogan used by chambers of commerce across the country that reads live, work, play.

Cooking is the end of a process that begins in a field’s rich soil. Almost everything that goes on the table, after all, reflects a farmer’s work and care … and learning curve. Mimi Edelman, who has been farming for 18 years, would be the first to tell you that. 

Edelman, the longtime operator of I & Me Farms in the lower Hudson Valley, relocated to Orient this past year for reasons that included the loss of her land lease and the desire to be near Long Island Sound. “I grew up in Connecticut, on the Sound,” she said. “I really missed it.” When she explored the possibility of leasing farmland from Priscilla Terry Bull, she discovered the Terry family and hers both originally emigrated from Elgin, Scotland. That clinched the deal. (more…)
