Something’s fishy at the farmers market these days!
The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market is proud and excited to welcome The Boys Fresh Catch to the summer market. Gaelyn and Mark Plachowicz of Brookfield bring in their catch out of Gloucester, Massachusetts on the Donna Marie, their 40-foot Novi dragger. Have you discovered their delicious fresh fish yet?
Gaelyn hand-picks the best of the best from the catch, which is then filleted and packaged fresh—not frozen—and then transported to market. Customers often remark that they’ve never tasted fish so fresh and flavorful. According to Gaelyn, who sells at the farmers market with her two boys Peter and Luke, fish caught by a dragger is the best possible quality, because the fish is always brought in alive.
The Boys Fresh Catch offers different kinds of fish every week, including flounder (4 different kinds), halibut, monkfish, codfish, haddock, skate, dogfish (a mini shark), whiting and hake. Gaelyn has been fishing with her husband for 11 years and can talk fish with the best of the fishmongers; she’s a wealth of information and is always ready to chat about recipes and cooking methods.
The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market is the only market that the Plachowicz family will vend at this season; we sure feel lucky to have them!
We’re at Clark Park in Wolfeboro every Thursday from 12:30 to 4:30. Be sure to stop by, and remember to pick up a raffle ticket for our weekly $75 gift certificate and market bag!
