Farm Stand Love

image via
We had been driving past the deserted shack at the intersection of Noyac and Stoney Hill roads on our way to Sag Harbor for years. It reminded me of a shack that my grandparents had on their farm in Minnesota. A peeling wood building that my brother, sister and the cousins converted from its previous life as a calf house into a club house. Uneven planks of wood with weeds all around. It definitely had seen better days. Each time we drove by, I pictured it converted into a different business.  One week an artsy news stand, another week a farm stand. Imagine my delight when the shack actually was opened as the farm stand  Serene Green. John and Laura Smith are in their second year as the proprietors of Serene Green. John, a third generation East End farmer, is also responsible (with Laura) for the ECCO farm stand in East Hampton.  You can see all of the care and attention to detail that John and Laura have taken to provide the best area products from produce to fresh local seafood and baked goods.

Serene Green hopes to remain open throughout the Fall season, hopefully until December. See their website for hours, specials and seasonal updates. I look forward to stopping in for supplies, both for eating and for painting!
