As of Friday, May 16, folks to the west of East Hampton will have easy access to the edible treasures that have been cherished by customers of Round Swamp Farm Market and Bakeshop on Three Mile Harbor Road since the '50s.
The new storefront in Bridgehampton will serve the bounty of the 20-acre, 250-year-old farm that has been farmed by the Lester family for nine generations. Tucked behind Bobby Van’s in a blue-shuttered building in the municipal parking lot, the new store will sell the local produce and canned and baked goods for which the original stand is so well known.
“At our country market, the shelves will be laden with a variety of baked goods, breads, berry muffins, scones, coffee and pound cakes, pies, fresh juices and teas, jams, jellies, fresh prepared meals and sides,” read a press release.
Produce will include the farm’s heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn, and sunflowers, while prepared goods with feature its famous fiesta guacamole, soups, and salad. A nut grinder will allow customers to grind their own almond butter.
Newbies to the store will be able to sample the cinnamon rolls, crumb cake, and brownies for which Lisa Niggles, a baker, is celebrated.
“In these times, when home is more precious than ever, we are happy to open ours to you,” the owners wrote. 97 School Street, email@example.com
