Seafood Throwdown!
4:00 PM16:00

Seafood Throwdown!

Gloucester, MA – The Cape Ann Farmers Market will again partner with the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance to host the tenth annual Seafood Throwdown on August 16th at Stage Fort Park!

Starting at 4 P.M., veteran competitor Common Crow will face newcomer Feather and Wedge. The challenge before them? To create a unique dish using a mystery fish to be revealed at the event. With their sous chefs, each team will have the opportunity to shop for local ingredients from the market to incorporate with their own favorite ingredients and create a winning seafood meal.

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's 19-foot kitchen skiff. 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?

CAFM in Northshore Magazine!

The Cape Ann Farmers Market is more than just a market! Read our feature in Northshore Magazine to learn all about CAFM and what we do beyond the weekly market!

Bogin sums up the value of farmers’ markets by saying: “The food tastes better, it’s better for the economy, it’s better for the community, and it allows people to directly interact with those who are growing and making their food, which makes for a great learning experience.”

Check out the article to find out how - as Northshore Magazine puts it -  "to shop at a farmers’ market is to contribute to the greater good."
