Stone’s Throw Farm Pops Up at Marilee’s Farmstand

Meet the friendly faces behind some of your favorite local foods at Marilee’s Farmstand in Sagaponack this Friday, May 5. In addition to Foster’s own selection of spring vegetables and her preserves, find local farmer Anthony Cinicolo from Stone’s Throw Farm — located just down the road in Sagaponack — selling his local products. Cinicolo will offer fresh spring flower bouquets, polenta, free-range chicken eggs and duck eggs at the farm stand.

Stone’s Throw Farm is a 13-acre sustainable agriculture project situated less than 50 yards from the ocean. It’s a “stone’s throw” to the water. Ask “Farmer Anthony” questions about how he grows his offerings organically, or just load up on goodies.

Marilee’s Farmstand at 698 Sagg Main Street in Sagaponack is currently open on Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Beginning May 27, the farm stand will also be open on Saturdays. Look for events at the stand throughout the season including other pop-up vendors, as well as farmer talks and more. For more information about Stone’s Throw Farm, message them on Instagram @stonesthrowfarmsagaponack.

And it’s not too late to sign up for Marilee’s Farmstand’s weekly Spring CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. In fact, you can opt into the program on a weekly basis. Visit marileesfarmstand.com for all the details, including discounts for seniors, schoolteachers, health care workers, EMTs and firefighters; and pick-up and delivery options.

A weekly email tells you what’s in each basket ($50 per, without discount). Every basket features a range of goods and a recipe. Pick up is at the farm stand Fridays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the CSA program, email info@marileesfarmstand.com or call 631-537-0070.

The Foster family is renowned for growing the best of local crops in the rich Bridgehampton loam for six generations. Marilee and her brother Dean Foster raise 30 acres of vegetables alongside 200 acres of the potatoes and grains. Marilee Foster specializes in heirloom tomatoes and farms a full range of seasonal vegetables year-round.

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo

Sister restaurants Coche Comedor and La Fondita in Amagansett will both celebrate Cinco de Mayo on Friday, May 5. The date is Coche Comedor’s fourth anniversary and the restaurant will serve dinner and a la carte specials on Cinco de Mayo from 5 to 9 p.m., including ceviche de pulpo, roasted suckling pig and rice pudding. Coche Comedor is at 74A Montauk Highway, Amagansett. For more information, call 631-267-5709 or visit cochecomedor.com.
