Buying Organic Produce in East Hampton, NY

East End Organic Community (ECCO) Farm is my favorite farm stand these days for buying organic produce in East Hampton, NY. It stands in the fields on picturesque Long Lane. Although not all the produce at ECCO Farm is organic, John, the owner seems to have the most organic produce I have found in the area. Today I wanted cherries to make a cherry crisp I had seen on gluten free mommy blog and they were out, so I asked John, who was carrying a box of bananas, if he had any . He ran back to the truck to get the cherries and excitedly announced, "They aren't local but they are organic and they are as fresh as you can get." Juicy Naam is another favorite for people who are looking for organic fruits and vegetables. They also have fresh juices and prepared foods. On Fridays, the farmers market at Nick and Toni's Restaurant sells local produce and food.
