Happy #July4th! Nothing says Independence Day in the Hamptons like blue hydrangea, an American flag, and an artisanal farmstand that will leave your credit card dazed and confused (see photo above of an East Hampton favorite, Round Swamp Farms). What else is happening on the East End this holiday weekend? Glad you asked. Here’s our lineup below.
