Greenport’s Maritime Festival weekend is upon us! For North Forkers, this event kicks off, unofficially, harvest season activities, and given that Greenport in particular and the East End in general have a rich history of sea-faring activities, this is very appropriate. The harvest of seafood from our local waters is as much a part of North Fork life as the harvest from our farms. I hope everyone has a chance to join the celebration this weekend and over the next few weeks. It’s a time a experience the East End the way the locals do all year round.
