Earlier today, I picked up my weekly box of fresh, organic produce from Amber Waves Farms in Amagansett. Through my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership, I am supporting local agriculture here on the East End. Not to mention, I love the smell, feel, look, and of course, taste of the food. Beautifully arranged in my box this week are: fennel, lettuce, eggplant, kale, jalapenos, Thai basil, peppers, garlic, red onion, beets, zucchini, and parsley. This is truly local abundance!
Just as there is an abundant crop of local produce, we have in the store a bumper crop of books about the iconic and glorious East End. ”Local” can be experienced and enjoyed in many ways. The books below tell stories, capture in photographs, or otherwise document what it’s like to live here.
