We have another gorgeous day in store for the market this weekend! Now is the time to get out there and take advantage of all the wonderful summer produce that our local farmers have to offer. The joy of summer cooking is the simplicity of the menu, let the ingredients speak for themselves! How about a fresh corn salad with sweet cherry tomatoes and basil? Or a nice piece of fish from golden cod alongside some grilled summer squash. All reasons to come by the market and stock up for a week of healthy & delicious eats! If you’re heading to the beach for the day, stop by on your way to pick up a pre-made sandwich from Swiss Bakers and some fresh pressed juice. Don’t forget to get your fresh chicken from Grant Family Farm!
This week our crafters will be Salem Soap & Itty Bitty Chick.
You can also find the Super Soccer Stars group at the market this weekend if you’re looking to sign the kids up for camp.
For music we will have The Fancy Bassetts.

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!
