Word On The Street

Scallop Auction Tuesday, July 22

As one buyer put it: "the repeating theme this year is too few scallops from too many regions. Never allowing enough of any single item to gain  ‘over abundance’ thereby allowing the price to come down."

I have noticed for mid summer, there seem to be more 20/30's landed than last year.
