There will be one less farmers market to frequent this summer.

After nine years, the Hayground School in Bridgehampton has announced that it will no longer hold a Friday afternoon farmers market on its grounds.

"We reached this extraordinarily tough conclusion in the face of a dwindling number of vendors," Tony Hitchock, the school's treasurer, wrote in a press release. The decision was reinforced by the departure of the school's market manager, Ella Engel-Snow.
