Bedford 2020 - Purdy's Farmer & The Fish

You’ll feel like you are at the Cape this summer when you eat fresh seafood with garden-fresh vegetables in this rustic, casual, 18th century house or on its porch amidst the colorful perennials! Purdy’s Farmer and the Fish, right off I-684 in North Salem, focuses its menu on high-quality seafood and vegetables and herbs grown right on the property. This is a popular spot, so you probably want to make a reservation.
Farmer's FieldThe chef, who studied agriculture in college, is also the farmer. In fact, most of the vegetables and herbs he serves in the restaurant come from the 2 acre farm behind the restaurant. The farm also provides fresh produce to the Farm Shop and to individuals who sign up for a CSA share. Down East Seafood has been recognized as a leader in environmental sustainability and is the exclusive supplier of seafood to the restaurant.

The halibut with snap peas and lemon risotto was drizzled with a striking green pesto full of the flavor of multiple herbs and I loved the delicious, deep mauve berry crisp.
Lunch and Dinner is served daily, brunch served on Sundays and a bar menu available in between. The farm shop is open daily and offers fresh produce, seafood, local dairy products and meats, prepared foods, baked goods, and specialty items.
