The proposed purchase of three properties with money from the community preservation fund will be the subject of an East Hampton Town Board hearing next Thursday night at 7, at Town Hall.
One parcel, just shy of six acres, is at 41 Three Mile Harbor Road in Springs, just north of Halsey’s Marina, on Three Mile Harbor. It is owned by the Prand Corporation. The purchase price is $3 million.
It may be firmly post-Labor Day, but almost all of the local farmers markets continue. Going through the close of September are the East Hampton Farmers Market, on North Main Street on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the Shelter Island Farmers Market, on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the grounds of the Shelter Island Historical Society on South Ferry Road. The Saturday markets at Ashawagh Hall in Springs and in Sag Harbor at Bay and Burke Streets, which both take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., will extend through October.
