Quoth a disgruntled shopper to The Rude Hamptons: 'What is really rude in the Hamptons is the audacity of the prices charged at Round Swamp Farm in East Hampton. For $66.08, I bought 3 tomatoes, 3 small containers of chicken salad, a bouquet of local flowers, and 5 cookies. Never again!!!!!' TRH's editor notes that Round Swamp's high prices are widely accepted in turn for its locally grown product. Then again, tomatoes are no more expensive to produce in East Hampton than anywhere else in the fertile-soiled world. Thoughts? [TRH]
