Seafood Throwdown at Cape Ann Farmers Market
Thursday, July 15, 2010 – 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Rogers Street, Gloucester, Massachusetts
Seafood Throwdowns were born at the Cape Ann Farmers Market two summers ago. This year, Seafood Throwdowns are back at the Farmers Market’s new location on Rogers Street.
Seafood Throwdown season returns to Gloucester this Thursday, July 15 starting at 4 p.m. at the Cape Ann Farmers’ Market new location on Rogers St. The reigning queen of the Throwdowns, Missy Hart and her Team Sugar Magnolias will once again defend her Throwdown title against Ryan Cox’s team from the Farm Bar and Grille in Essex. While new to the Seafood Throwdown, Ryan’s team is no stranger to competition and innovation as seen in their most recent event “The Farm at Sea” which was held on a boat.
Seafood Throwdowns are an opportunity learn more about our local seafood, local fishing fleet and fisheries related issues affecting our ocean, fishing economies and coastal food systems. Chefs Hart and Cox will educate and entertain you with their skills as they show how to work with whole, fresh, and very local seafood. Chefs can bring three of their favorite ingredients and once they discover the secret seafood they will be using, they get $25 and 15 minutes to shop the Farmers’ Market for ingredients. After their shopping spree, they have one hour to cook and present their entry for the judge’s consideration. This is a free event, open
to the public. Tastings will be available for farmer’s market shoppers.
The event is a collaboration between the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, Cape Ann Farmers Market, Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Association and the Cape Ann Fresh Catch Community Supported Fishery (CSF). It promises to be a fun, educational and community-driven activity designed to link the importance of locally caught seafood to the health and resilience of our ocean.
See you there!

Thursday afternoon at The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market The 2010 Seafood Throwdown series will officially begin with two time former champ Missy from Sugar Mag’s taking on newcomers Ryan Cox and Co from The Farm Bar and Grille.
Missy was a little agitated that the Seafood Throwdown organizers pit her in a seafood cooking competition against boys from the country who specialize in BBQ and issued the following bet to her competitors at The Farm Bar and Grille-
This could get ugly. Look for the response from the boys at The Farm Bar and Grille tomorrow on these pages!

Just noticed this sign in front of the cash register the day before yesterday. I like the French Roast.
Missy said the only way I could air this is if I put in the disclaimer that Eric is an asshole.
So there you go-
For the record Missy had no disparaging remarks for the judges of the good Morning Gloucester Holiday Cookie Contest. This is Eric trying to create a controversy that simply did not exist and Missy was most gracious in defeat.
I put tabasco on mine. If you haven’t tried them yet, do yourself a favor and get down to Sugar Mag’s for the crabcakes bene. When having this meal day before yesterday Missy asked me if I’m ever going to try anything else on the menu.
After speaking with Missy from Sugar Mag’s yesterday morning she informed me that they will be offering breakfast all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
Remember those days in college when you would get hammered on Friday and Saturday night? You didn’t want any lunch, you wanted a big greasy breakfast damnit! Cheers to Sugar Mag’s for offering the good stuff all day on the weekends!
