Fans of Lavender by the Bay won’t have to travel as far east to visit blooming lavender fields starting Saturday. The popular East Marion farm is opening an outpost in Calverton this weekend.

Visitors can expect a paired down version of the original, with one acre of French and English lavender slowly starting to come into bloom, as opposed to the 17-acre East Marion property that is home to some 80,000 lavender plants.
