Taste the North Fork-Love Lane!

IMG_0122

Come Taste the North Fork by taking a simple stroll up and down Love Lane, a few blocks packed with unique shops right in the heart of Mattituck, and enjoying the special farmer’s market and merchant events. The Love Lane community will be honoring our veterans by donating a portion the weekend’s revenues to a locally founded veteran’s organization.

The farmer’s market, which runs Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm, involves a huge range of locally grown and crafted products. For example, Browders Birds will be offering certified organic eggs, spice rubs, lambs wool, honey, and T-shirts. Race Rock Oysters will be presenting smoked blue fish and fresh oysters. Coffee aficionados should check out the offerings of Long Island Coffee Roasters. Invincible Summer Farms will be offering farm made goods, rare heirloom vegetables, and more. 8 Hands Farm will showcase wool and hand crafted bone jewelry. And these are just some of the participants in the farmers market!

Love Lane merchants will be contributing to the fun in many ways from 11 am to 6 pm. You can dance down the street to the music of the Long Island Banjo Society, who will perform from 11 am to 2 pm, courtesy of Love Lane independent bookstore Bookhampton. Or unwind with a relaxing 15 minute chair massage by the Blue Sage Day Spa. And when you get hungry, you’ll be able to sample local produce cooked into lots of treats. For example, the Village Cheese Shop will feature Paninis made with local apples and honey. Love Lane Kitchen will offer butternut squash soup made with the organic produce of Mar-Gene Farms. Love Lane Market will be adding local ingredients to its wood-fired pizzas. Wash these delicious meals done with a glass of wine, a pint of beer, or a bottle of cider, brought to you by Roanoke Vineyards. Looking for a delicious treat to take home as a useful souvenir? The Love Lane Sweet Shoppe will feature the locally crafted Really Good Jams.

And these merchants aren’t the only ones participating. You’ll have to take the Love Lane stroll to check them all out.and when you’re done, if you want to check out other venues, hop on the free shuttle; it stops right at Love Lane.

Taste The North Fork-Shorecrest

Taste the North Fork-Shorecrest

 

One of the loveliest, easiest ways to enjoy all that Love Lane has on offer this festival weekend is to stay at Shorecrest. Here you’ll find calm, quiet beauty, a delicious breakfast, and all the inside skinny I can offer on the happenings throughout the weekend. You’ll find Shorecrest an oasis adjacent to, but blissfully apart from, all the hullabaloo. Of course I’m joining in the spirit of the weekend–stay here and I’ll give you a certificate for a tasting at nearby Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard and a free bottle of their delicious wine.
