Seafood Throwdown

Since 2008, Seafood Throwdowns have proven to be fun, educational and community driven events to promote public awareness of what it really means to have sustainable seafood. A Seafood Throwdown engages the larger community in issues affecting our ocean, fishing communities, and sustainable fisheries.

Seafood Throwdown was the brainchild of the partnership between the Cape Ann Farmers Market and the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA) as a way of raising awareness and promoting the ecological and economic importance of locally caught seafood, building a broader base of support for efforts to transform fisheries and ocean policies, and gauging community’s interest in Community Supported Fisheries (CSF).


Gloucester Horribles Parade

Every year, the Cape Ann Farmers Market partners with Backyard Growers and with engaged local community members to make a food-and-farming-themed float for the annual Gloucester Horribles parade.
