The Construction of A @SistaFelicia Mudiga Steak Sandwich Using The @STOKGrills Island Grill @CapeAnnFMkt

Sold Out Once Again- It was hilarious.  People walking by and get a whiff of the mudiga steaks on the grill and it’s like they were led by their nose to her spot.  If you’re cooking on nights like last night when you could go to The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market and get grub like this- You Crazy.

Note The Generous Amount Of Work Space The STOK Island Grill Affords Making It Perfect For The Farmer’s Market

Cape Ann Farmer’s Market In Top 100 Nationwide!

Niki Bogin submits-

Hey GMG!

As the keepers of all things amazing about Cape Ann, I wanted to let you guys know that The Daily Meal has complied a list of the top farmers markets in the country, and out of 4000 in the nation, we have been in the top 100 two years running. Even more exciting is that we are one of only a handful in New England to make the list, with the CAFM poised as the #1 in our region.

It looks like this year it was Trupiano’s sausage that put us over the top, which is completely understandable!

Cheers to all and see you on Thursday at Stage Fort!

Niki
