9. Balsam Farms


The Amagansett Farmstand, 293 Town Lane, Amagansett

Montauk Market, 662 Montauk Highway, Montauk

The original Balsam Farms Amagansett Farmstand opened in 2003, and they've been selling their crops there ever since. Balsam Farms' growing collection of produce includes fresh vegetables and herbs, local baked goods, ready-to-eat foods, dairy, meat, fresh-cut flowers, and gifts. Visit the Amagansett location to walk around the fields, watch the harvesting process in action, and see up close where your farmstand favorites come from. 

The Montauk Market opened in 2019, and it sells produce delivered fresh from the Amagansett farms daily. This is an indoor grocery store rather than an outdoor stand, and it carries a bunch of additional specialty items and local Montauk products. Balsam often has booths at a few of the farmer's markets listed above, but you should visit one of their locations directly if there's something specific you're craving. Local delivery is available at both locations, as is pre-order for pickup.  


10. Quail Hill Farm


660 Old Stone Hwy, Amagansett

A bit more off the beaten path, Quail Hill Farm is a 35-acre farm off Old Stone Highway.

With education being a large part of its mission, Quail Hill also hosts a ton of community engagement events that offer fun for the whole family.
