Bulletin: First Pint of Local Strawberries Purchased in Sag Harbor Today
Well, I was wrong yesterday about being a week or two away from strawberry season. Bette and Dale's is growing some early varieties, and picking started today. I went to their stand (Bette & Dale's, 1726 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike) for some salad this morning, and walked away with their very first pint. Quantities are limited now (there will be more in the next week or two), so stop by early. Same goes for the Farmers' Market on Saturday (9 to 12 on Bay Streeet), where the berries are sure to sell out soon after the market opens.
