Harbor Market Celebrates a Year in Sag Harbor

When Harbor Market was getting ready to open last year, there were murmurs in town about how it would serve the Sag Harbor community. For generations the little market on the corner of Henry and Division has been a fixture in the daily lives of Sag Harbor residents, from its time as a penny candy shop to Espresso’s Italian Market. A block away from the school, the space is incorporated into the lives of local schoolchildren and their parents. And just outside the hustle and bustle of Main Street, it’s long been an easy stop for takeout and coffee. Owners Paul and Susana Del Favaro and Abbey Warsh knew all of this when they took over the market, and it was with great sensitivity that they formulated what was to come.

Bhumi Farms is Officially Organic in Amagansett

When Frank Trentacoste started Bhumi Farms three seasons ago, he was an empty canvas. He left his Wall Street background behind and fixed his attention to the soil, the seasons, and the earth. From the beginning, every choice he made was with an interest in the wellbeing of the environment and the healthfulness of the food he grew. When given a choice between an organic product and a traditional product, he always chose organic. He used paper mulch instead of plastic, essential oils instead of pesticides, and organic fertilizers instead of chemicals. So receiving the certified organic designation this year, in his fourth season, was more about getting his paperwork in order than anything else. But that is no small feat.

Restaurateurs Plan Makeover in East Hampton

Everybody knows that restaurants are a risky business. But when they’re done right, the gamble and hard work pay off and the rewards are sweet. Or savory, depending. Sag Harbor-based entrepreneurs Michael Gluckman and Shane Dyckman are no strangers to the (sometimes sour, salty and bitter) vagaries of food business ownership. Between the two, they have almost a dozen restaurant proprietorship experiences — most recently Madison and Main in Sag Harbor for Mr. Gluckman and SagTown Coffee in the village and in Montauk for Mr. Dyckman.
