For the first time in 17 years, I am travelling from my home outside Boston to visit family in the Farmingdale area. I am in charge of cooking/preparing the various vegetable dishes.
Over the years, I have been underwhelmed at the quality of produce in LI markets (even places like Fairway).
But I have to believe that there must be some local grocers who have a picky clientele that demand good and varied produce.
Any suggestions? I remember there used to be a great farmstand in Plainview just north of the LIE eons ago, but that all looks developed now.
I sort of would like to keep between, let's say, a band defined by Wantagh Pkwy on the west and Sagtikos Pwy on the east, as it were.
Your suggestions are most appreciated.
