On Saturday, May 17, 12-5pm at the Greenport Tourist Information Booth on the Main Road in Greenport, the North Fork Promotional Council turned the season opening of the booths and distribution of the North Fork Directory into an event called “Taste the North Fork.” The event was designed to showcase the North Fork’s best kept secrets from the farms, vines, sea and land.
At scheduled intervals, booths went up featuring; farmers produce including North Fork Table Food Truck, Taste of the North Fork & cHarissa, Race Rock Oysters, Goodale Farms, Garden Fusion, Invincible Summer Farms, Southold School Garden, Browder’s Birds, Blue Duck Bakery.
Chefs also offered samples of dishes they make for their local restaurants and local businesses were featured as well.
From noon to 5, spanning the course of the event, the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Association had a booth, giving everyone the opportunity to “meet the innkeepers” and answer questions about our bed and breakfasts.
We offered homemade cookies, beverages and treats and enjoyed speaking with everyone that stopped by.
The weather cooperated and the effect was that of a multi-faceted farmers market featuring the best of what the North Fork has to offer. It was a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to meet and network with local business owners.
