{Event} Chef Throwdown This Weekend!


We hope you’ll all be coming out to join us this Sunday for what is looking to be a gorgeous sunny day!  We’ve got our biggest event of the season and you won’t want to miss it!


We would like to take a quick moment to highlight the amazing people who are helping us out with the event this year.

Judging the Chef Throwdown competition will be three local experts:  

Kim Carrigan, co-host of The Financial Exchange on WRKO 680 AM and long-time resident of Swampscott, will both emcee and judge the competition. A foodie at heart, Kim says she’s so excited to test the final results.

Our second judge will be Wellington Augusto of Mission Oak Grill in Newburyport and now the Red Rock Bistro in Swampscott.  A native of Brazil, Augusto combines his love of food with his passion for hospitality.  He has served as Executive Chef for several of Boston’s most prestigious restaurants.

Our third judge will be accomplished freelance journalist Jeanne O’Brien Coffey.  She writes frequently on food and wine for Northshore magazine and her work has appeared in the Boston Globe Magazine, Wine Country International, and Executive Travel. Jeanne can’t wait to learn about the secret ingredient!

Rumor has it that the judges won’t be the only ones to get a taste of the competition’s results–samples of the chefs’ creations will be available to the public!

To find more details about the event or to read about the talented chefs participating, please see our previous post.


Not only will the event be a blast but this is one of the best times of year to visit the market.  The tables are overflowing with sweet red tomatoes, peppers, corn, eggplant, cucumbers, and all your fall favorites like crisp apples, pears and butternut squash (just to name a few).

We’ll see you on Sunday, bring the whole family along!
