The Food Mill in Point Lookout Opens its Doors

Point Lookout NY
The Food Mill in Point Lookout, NY -- Designed, Owned, and Operated by Richard Zampella
The market that Nicholas and Carmela Merola opened in 1930 in the tiny Long Island hamlet of Point Lookout, NY recently re-opened its doors at 40 Lido Boulevard. The New Market is named the Food Mill and will continue to operate from the same location on Lido Boulevard, is something of a throwback, like Point Lookout itself.

The village, surrounded on three sides by water, is a seaside Wobegon within commuting distance of New York City. The speed limit is 15 mph. You have to pick up your own mail at the post office. And celebrity residents have been more on the order of Charles Atlas or Marlene Dietrich than Madonna or Lady Gaga.

Proprietors Richard Zampella and Shannon Mulholland know what it takes to run a business in Point Lookout. Their Ice Cream Store, Skipperdees has been voted as the Best Ice Cream Shop on Long Island for 2017 & 2018 and has been serving up sweets to the young and young at heart since 2007.
