    I’ve always thought and sometimes experienced farmers markets as being almost “boutique-y” in their higher costs, so this was a pleasant surprise to me. I agree with Joy — amazingly low prices for some incredibly fresh seafood.

    Jen, these pictures of the farmers market — and, frankly, seeing the low prices — is working its magic on getting me to shop locally. I made mussels last night, but Prince Edward Island from Market Basket for $5.50/pound. When we could have had yours for $4 — fresher, cheaper, local, less carbon footprint. Hell, I live 6 miles from Gloucester, Mass, where fresh fish is coming in off boats daily. What am I doing, buying seafood at the big impersonal grocery stores?

    It’s a mindset shift, and the techtonic plates are in motion, thanks to you.

  2. Delicious, as always. Can you share your method for searing the London broil? I’m always picking up and putting back that cut…I’ve never made it for fear of it being tough. Do tell how you make yours!

    Joy – Come on up and visit!

    Allison – There are some real bargains to be had at farmers’ markets. I think a lot of people would be surprised! Perry’s seafood is a downright bargain – some of the tastiest stuff I’ve ever had, and you can’t beat the freshness.

    Katie – Mike was actually responsible for the London Broil, so I’ll have to defer to him on that. I’ll be sure he replies when he gets back from New York 🙂

    You should have a show on the Food Network.

    I just returned from a quick visit to RI and MA. I love the area….very beautiful this time of year.
