Daily Bee: Sag Harbor Farmers Market. Leaves of Grass. And Best Yet Opens.

Happy Tuesday! Full disclosure: we’re already thinking about the weekend. Herewith: We report that the Sag Harbor farmers market (on Bay Street, three blocks east of Main Street) opens for its 13th season this Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You have until October 29 to stop by. New vendors this year include Clarkson Avenue Crumb Cake, Endless Summer, Hillrock Distillery and Kalypso Yogurt.

Meanwhile, for those who need to get in touch with their Sag Harbor roots or channel their inner whalers, the inaugural Sag Harbor Cultural Heritage Day will also be this Saturday. Rather inexplicably, the event will feature a Walt Whitman marathon at Canio’s Books. The great American poet was born in Huntington (which is not the Hamptons) and lived in New Jersey. Ah well. We all sing the body electric.

Did someone say ‘white girl wasted’ – ?

The Sloppy Tuna in Montauk has apparently re-opened under new management, according to Curbed Hamptons. Please hold your applause until the end of this dispatch. The eatery, perhaps in a bid to lose its “very Jersey shore” reputation, is now using the hashtag #RespectMontauk. Which at least sounds promising. Here’s a photo we found using that hashtag. Could be worse.

Quick takes

Best Yet Market hopes to be open in Westhampton Beach by Memorial Day weekend (or possibly sooner), in the former Waldbaum’s location on Sunset Avenue. We hear good things about the produce. In other Westhampton Beach foodie news, the village is conflicted about whether to allow a mini-version of Smorgasburg (the popular Brooklyn food expo) on Fridays this summer. There is another meeting Wednesday about it, so stay tuned…

If you need a new power adapter, now might be the time to stop by GeekHampton in Sag Habor, which is hosting a big yard sale of Apple products and accessories through next Monday.  “We’re making room for summer inventory,” say the geeks. Look for anything with a green dot: It’s 75% off, people…

Attention: those who lunch in Wainscott. Breadzilla, whose grilled salmon sandwich is something like manna from heaven, will be closed — but just today and possibly Wednesday. “We are getting new windows!” according to the store. Phew. 

Social Media Quote of the Day

“Hey Mother Nature, bring back the warmer weather. We were enjoying it!” — Paddlers for Humanity, the East Hampton nonprofit, posting this rather grumpy photo to Facebook. We totally get it. And can someone make this cold wind stop? Thank you.
