This week at the market, on top of fresh produce, local fish, and delicious baked goods, you can get your knives sharpened by Venier Forge or your bike repaired by Big Mike’s Bikes! Check out our website for our full list of vendors.
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!
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!
