Top things to do in Sag Harbor this Fall (Covid-19 Friendly)
Visit a Local Farm Stand or Farmers’ Market
The abundance of local goods around every corner in the Hamptons is a great opportunity to shop produce and other items that hail from the East End. There is a reason why Ina Garten calls this place home and has a whole show based around her kitchen in East Hampton. The East End of Long Island is home to some of the world's top farms and vineyards. Our favorite local farmstand is Serene Green, situated along the bend of Noyac Road just outside of Sag Harbor.

Sag Harbor Farmers’ Market
Every Saturday from 9am-1pm on the corner of on Bay Street and Burke Street.
The architecture and traditional style of Sag Harbor is something I never get tired of. There is so much history and detail around every corner and on each street. As one of the first seaports in America, Sag Harbor boasts a flush collection of traditional whaler’s cottages and larger captain homes. Spending an hour or two walking around the village offers a curbside way to explore the architecture. Walking tours are available via the Sag Harbor Partnership. https://www.sagharborpartnership.org/walking-tours.html iphone tours also available.
There is no shortage of coffee spots in Sag Harbor. We love a quad espresso poured over ice at SagTown Coffee located right on Main Street. This is a busy little coffee shop with lots of unique, fresh coffee options. They also make a great chai latte for cooler Fall days.

Keep an eye out for all the various vintage and remodeled cars that can be spotted around the Village of Sag Harbor.
Take a walk along the beach at Long Beach in the manner of “The Way We Were”. Long Beach, just outside the Village of Sag Harbor, has scenic views of Shelter Island and a great stretch for walking.
The stretch of land between Sag Harbor and Bridgehamoton along the old railroad tracks is known as the Long Pond Greenbelt. There is a great three mile hike to Bridgehampton with numerous other trails that loop around the various ponds. If you are looking for a hike right here in Sag Harbor, this is a good one. Also, the foliage is sure to be perfect for color this time of year. More info at https://www.longpondgreenbelt.org/ and on AllTrails
One of our favorite spots to dine at is the American Hotel located on Main Street. They offer a full menu all day and have perfect little Fall snacks if you are looking to do a mid-day bite. They have perfected social distancing and safety measures for in-door dining and offer multiple, heated outdoor areas as well. The restaurant features a beautiful atrium, a must see! Make sure to order local oysters and a Negroni.
Other favorites are Dopo and Il Cappucino.
We are happy to be a part of a diverse community that has much to offer. You can find a plethora of unique things up and down Main Street. A few of our favorites are Blooming Shells, Bloom, Sylvester & Co, and MONCXIII.
