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.
