Commerce & Culture
Sound Avenue/Route 25A runs east to west, bisecting Wading River, while the meandering North Wading River Road roughly parallels it to the north. North Country Road and Hulse Landing Road connect them, and much of the hamlet’s commerce sits within the four corners of this green patch of land. The Shoppes at East Wind is a charming shopping and community destination, with a pretty carousel set among sweet shops, restaurants, jewelers, professional services, and a general store named American Pie. An impressive number of farms are set along Route 25A, including Davis Peach Farm, May’s Farm (tomatoes, blackberries, cucumbers, corn, melons, peppers, eggplant, string beans, zucchini), and Lewin Farms (corn, various berries, cauliflower, sprouts, broccoli, cabbage). Some of that local flavor can be enjoyed at Michael Anthony’s Food Bar, one of the most inventive dining venues in Wading River.
