Great corn/tomatoes near Bethpage, NY

I have yet to come across any great summer produce this season - in particular corna nd tomatoes. I haven't been able to get to the East End this summer and I was wondering if any of my fellow hounds could reccomend any stores, farmstands, markets, closer to my home in Bethpage.

The corn I bought at Fairway last week can be summed up in one word -- bleeech.

  1. My family on Long Island likes to go to Rottkamp's in Old Brookville (maybe a 15-20 minute hike for you). They grow a lot of stuff on premeses, though it has been a few years since my last visit and I'm not sure of exactly what these days. I googled it to come up with an address (because it's kind of tucked away where you would never know it's there if somebody didn't tell you about it) and came upon this article by Erica Marcus:
    Lots of places listed, Rottkamp's is near the bottom of the page.

    From what I hear, it's not a good year for tomatoes, at least not yet, fwiw.
