Sag Harbor Notes

Community news and events

Fair Foods
    There will be new hours and new vendors, beginning this Saturday, for the Fair Foods Farmers Market, which is being held at the Bay Burger building on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike through May 12. The market will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with locally prepared foods such as baked goods, organic olive oils, wines, cooking spices, jams, grass-fed meats, and hormone-free dairy products. In late April, early season vegetables, including asparagus, arugula, chard, garlic, and lettuce, are expected at the market.

Foundation Food
   On Sunday, at 5 p.m., the second annual celebration honoring the late Josh Levine will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at Bay Street Theatre at 5 p.m., followed by a 7 p.m. dinner at the American Hotel. The restaurant and theater worked with the East End chapter of Slow Food U.S.A. and local merchants to put the event together in support of the Joshua Levine Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to remember the young farmer who died in a tractor accident in November of 2010. This year, the foundation will support internships allowing three garden coordinators to work with school gardens on the East End, and if funding permits, a mentoring program for children from disadvantaged communities. Tickets for the cocktail party alone are $75; for both cocktails and dinner, the ticket is $150. Both must be reserved in advance at jlmf.weebly.com.

Page Jam
    John Miller, a well-known Broadway musician, will be the house bassist for the Thursday Night Live Band next Thursday at the Jazz Jam Session’s last seasonal appearance at Page at 63 Main. The show goes from 7 to 9 p.m., and a $5 minimum donation has been suggested.

Windmill in Need
    The board of Save Sag Harbor has sent word that the organization is helping to fund the restoration of the windmill on Long Wharf, with hopes of additional donations from those who enjoy its presence. The blades have already been removed due to safety concerns. Also in need of repair are the windmill’s shingles, windows, and foundation. The group estimates the costs to total $60,000, and has pledged to replace one of the blades for $3,000. A group within the group, the Save Sag Harbor Board and Friends, has agreed to match up to $1,500 of donations over $10.
