The Cape Ann Farmers Market is BACK!

CAFM Chicken Tractor Vector

The Cape Ann Farmers Market is happy to announce a Drive Thru/Pre-Order Cape Ann Farmers Market at Gloucester’s O’Maley Middle School starting Thursday June 4! 

Thank you to the CAFM community for your patience as we have been working hard to put together a plan to keep you, our patrons, and our vendors safe in this time of uncertainty. Cape Ann Farmers Market will look different this season, but we are, as always grateful for the opportunity to contribute to food access and security in our community.

For the 2020 summer season, the Cape Ann Farmers Market will be:

Thursdays 3:00-6:30
at the O’Maley Innovation Middle School
32 Cherry Street Gloucester

*Drive-thru and pre-order ONLY*

Summer is nearly here, and along with it comes the first delicious greens, radishes, and green garlic from our local farms. The harvest is coming in as it always does, and the Cape Ann Farmers Market is working to make sure that you can access it safely in these uncertain times. Preorder NOW to get your veggies, fruit, and baked goods for Thursday – or for the season if you become a shareholder at one of our farms. New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Farmer Dave’s  still have vegetable and fruit CSA shares available that you can pick up right at the Cape Ann Farmers Market. You can even use your SNAP/HIP benefits to sign up!

For this Thursday, you can preorder from one of the links below (more to come in future weeks), or come pick up your CSA share if you’re already a member:

Farmer Dave’s – Get your order in by 12:00 pm Wednesday before our Thursday market, and pick up your veggies, baked goods, flowers, and more!

Marshview Farm  – Get a spring veggie sampler, eggs, lettuce, or bok choy! Get your order in ASAP!

A&J King – preorder all of your favorite bread, cookies, pastries, granola, and other sweet things on TUESDAY so that you can pick up your delicious treats on Thursday.

Kim Gregory Pure Pastry – delicious options across the board for gluten lovers and gluten free alike!

If you preorder from one of our vendors -or you are a current shareholder of one of our farms – we can’t wait to see you on Thursday!

Please visit our website at capeannfarmersmarket.org and review our guidelines for joining us at the market to help us keep our community, our farmers, our bakers, and each other safe!

2018 Seafood Throwdown at this week’s Cape Ann Farmers Market!

SEAFOOD Throwdown (1)

For our 10th annual event, the cook off will feature veteran competitors Common Crow and Feather and Wedge, represented by chefs Mike Duggan and Ryan McGovern respectively.

The challenge before them? To create a unique dish using a mystery locally caught seafood that will be revealed at the event.

Completed dishes shall be presented to a panel of judges who will score based on taste, use of the whole animal, presentation, and originality. Who will this year’s winner be?

Check out the event here! 

PLUS

While the Throwdown chefs are hard at work, market goers will be able to feast on freshly prepared seafood dishes and learn about place-based consumption at the Eating with the Ecosystem 18-foot kitchen skiff. This seafood non-profit got their start in Rhode Island but aspires to become a voice for all New England commercial fishermen. Their five-anchor philosophy mirrors the same principles that the event has always promoted: proximity, symmetry, adaptability, connectivity, and most importantly, community.

AND ON TOP OF ALL THIS, WE’LL HAVE OUR AMAZING WEEKLY MARKET!

3:00-6:30 at Stage Fort Park! 

Stock up on all your summer favorites, get your bike fixed by Big Mike’s Bikes, and bring home some of the same mystery fish the chefs use from Cape Ann Fresh Catch!
