This past spring, Williams-Sonoma, one of the nation’s largest retailers, launched a new line called Agrarian that included mushroom logs, planter boxes, home brewing kits and nearly 300 products designed to encourage people to make food a bigger part of their lives. To push boundaries of its offerings even further, this Saturday, the Williams-Sonoma in Bridgehampton will host a pop-up farmers markets that Edible East End helped curate with local bread, ice cream, cheese, jerky, preserves and more excellent edibles.
This Saturday’s market will include A Taste of the North Fork, Catapano Dairy, Del Pozzo Foods, Dolce Nirvana, Joe & Liza’s, Martine Arbitol, Oven Artisans, and Slant Shack Jerky. Read more about these food makers here.
In fact, this summer, responding to the collective upswell of interest in gardening, home preserving and all things food related, Williams-Sonoma is hosting these artisan markets in collaboration with eight Edible magazines around the country, who have culled their lists of stories, advertisers and food business connections to help curate the markets.
In this region, markets are planned for June, July and August, in Manhattan, on Long Island and in New Jersey. (Austin, Boston, San Franciso, San Diego, and South Florida are also hosting markets.) Last week, saw markets at the Williams-Sonoma stores in Hackensack, New Jersey, in Huntington Station on Long Island, and on Madison Avenue in Manhattan. In case you missed then, don’t worry, here are the market dates for July and August too (including July 21 and August 18 in Bridgehampton).
