It doesn’t get more ‘Americana’ than July in the Hamptons. Lazy mornings with Dreamy coffee (and Leallo new arrivals), sandy beach days and barbecues on the back deck, sticky ice cream cones - summer shows off in all the right ways. 

The Maui Dress in White

Obviously, we’re partial to being outdoors as much as possible – long strolls on Sagg Main Beach, morning hikes through Shadmoor State Park, and like any true local (or seasonal friend), a good ol' farmers market Saturday. Sag Harbor and East Hampton offer two of the best markets with their incredible selection of locally-caught seafood, freshly-picked produce, and assorted breads and pastries, plus more novelty products, like handmade soaps, body butters, and herbal salves. The markets are always fun, big and busy and great to take city visitors, though, Out East farm stands also do the trick. Smaller, but equally fresh, and arguably, even more “local”, we love popping by to grab ingredients for a fabulous summer salad or last-minute hostess gift. We’re sharing three of our favorite spots for all of your cooking and entertaining needs:

Amber Waves, Amagansett 

Take the kids here before you hit the sand on a Saturday morning. A market and cafe rolled into one, you can get delicious wraps, salads, and cold brew to-go (because keeping caffeinated is essential when trying to find beach parking). Their breakfast game is one of the best in town!

Serene Green, Sag Harbor

You can’t live or summer in Sag without a weekly visit to Serene Green. We love shopping their farm fresh veggies and seafood for impromptu dinner parties. Stocked with shrimp, clams, salmon, halibut, flounder, and lobster, we’ve discovered this is the surest way to impress guests with a home-cooked meal!

Pike Farms, Sagaponack

Known for the most amazing corn and peaches (coming soon), Pike Farms is open daily from strawberry through pumpkin season. Their tomatoes are also fantastic – we promise you won’t regret their homemade Pike Farms Tomato sauce over a bowl of your favorite pasta.

Where to watch the 'works

While Hamptons farm stands are as cute as they come, our town carnivals and 4th of July firework celebrations are just as memorable.

You can’t go wrong with The Fourth’s ‘Montauk’s Fireworks’ on Umbrella Beach or Southampton’s Independence Day Parade but many of our beloved festivities happen post-holiday. The Sag Harbor Yacht Club is hosting fireworks on July 6th, while the Clamshell Foundation in East Hampton and Shelter Island’s Crescent Beach are both putting on displays on Saturday, July 13th.

Come August, the Sag Harbor Fire Department throws their annual carnival and yes, it includes a Ferris wheel.

Happy celebrating!
