What a winter. But finally it’s time to look forward to the season. Fish and chips on our patio overlooking Barnstable Harbor. Fresh fish from our market, cooked at home over a hot grill. And the joy of clambakes we’ll take all over New England.
A few months ago, we told you about our efforts to grow our own steamers, with the help of our friend Wayne Hayes. Well, this rough winter brought constant ice flow and icebergs moving in and out of the marsh—impossibly harsh conditions for our growing steamers. Only three of the five nets full of steamer seed we planted two years ago survived the winter.
We’re looking ahead now though: we’ve got work to do and clams to bake! We are hopeful about our littleneck clams. They should be ready for harvest come June and we’re looking forward to bringing their home grown flavor to our stores and clambakes.
In Sandwich, we are ready to get going for clambake season. We’re especially excited about our new smoker. We’ll be turning out succulent smoky chicken for our clambakes this year.
On Barnstable Harbor, we’ve kept with our spring tradition of being open May first. We’re open Friday, Saturdays and Sundays until Memorial Day Weekend when we kick off our full summer schedule and open seven days a week. Come check out a few new items on our menu there.
Back in Osterville, we’ve made a few updates, too. Hopefully you notice our beautiful new sign hanging off the front of our building. We’ve updated our cash registers, too, with a whole new system designed to make your shopping here as easy as could be.
Above all, as the season approaches, we want you to know that what we look forward to most is the chance to see you again and serve you. Come welcome summer with us!
