Farm Stands in the Hamptons's insider take:

The East End is loaded with gourmet grocery stores peddling the stuff of fabulous dinner parties ($100/pound lobster salad, anyone?) But there's also great local produce at the area's farm stands, which make good bicycling pit stops as well as prime prospects for surreptitious celebrity sightings. The Halsey family sells apples, peaches, and cider donuts from the Milk Pail Country Store on Montauk Highway near Bridgehampton, and from September through October at their nearby U-Pick Apple and Pumpkin Farm (631-537-2565). Round Swamp Farm, in Springs, is popular for its fresh juices and homemade salsas (631-324-4438). Fairview Farm on Horsemill Lane in Bridgehampton has cheese from local Mecox Bay Dairy, fresh iced ginger tea, and other local treats; the farm also runs a cornfield maze each year between September and November (631-537-6154). Pike Farms, located on bucolic Sagg Main Street in Sagaponack, is known for its tomatoes and corn, which are sweetest during late summer.—Updated by Darrell Hartman
