North Fork locals probably remember Grandma’s vegetable stand, a Main Road farm stand in Aquebogue that once sold strawberries and sweet corn every summer and cauliflower, cabbage and potatoes each fall. The working farm had been in operation since the 1920s and sold the crops from a trailer until the 1960s, when a farm stand was built.

Although it’s closed for business now, the structure still stands on the 1.04-acre property, now on the market for $324,000.

There’s also a white, four-bedroom cottage with one bathroom and a spectacular view, says listing agent Kate Carpluk of Town & Country Real Estate. “It’s backed up by 190 acres of preserved farmland,” she says.

Carpluk says the land is zoned for horses and other farm and nursery uses. “And the Main Road exposure is excellent,” Carpluk says. There’s also a two-car garage and a chicken coop.
