Where to go for good produce in central LI?

Karl S. | Nov 18, 2003 01:16 PM

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.
