This week, we’re gearing up for another great event at the farmers market – the Seafood Throwdown.  The event is an opportunity to showcase the best of local seafood, to learn about sustainability in the seafood industry, and to celebrate together the wealth, beauty, and bounty of our ocean!

The throwdown will feature a head-to-head competition between Chef Ken McCluskey of The Blarney Stone in Dorchester and Chef Stephen Pierce of BIDMC Food Services.  The chefs will battle it out to cook up the most delicious rendition of a mystery local seafood ingredient which will be unveiled by Red’s Best Seafood just moments before the clock starts!  Each chef will receive $25 to spend on seasonal produce at the farmers market to complement their fresh-fish dish.
