Blue Duck Bakery is looking to open its fourth location on Front Street in Greenport, co-owner Nancy Kouris confirmed Wednesday.

Ms. Kouris, who owns Blue Duck along with her husband Keith, is scouting a storefront at 130 Front Street in downtown Greenport.

Although still in the planning stages, Ms. Kouris, an Aquebogue resident, hopes the bakery will open in time for the busy summer season.

“We love Greenport,” Ms. Kouris said. “This is something we’ve been wanting to do for awhile, but we wanted to wait for the right opportunity.”

The Kouris’ started their first bakery in Southampton 15 years ago and have since opened two more locations in Riverhead and Southold.

Ms. Kouris said the new location falls in line with the bakery’s motto: a village needs a bakery.

The Village planning board is taking up the application during its work session meeting Thursday night.
