NOT DETERRED BY BLIZZARD OF 2015! I am still planning on being at The City Bakery with 3 amazing Maine scallop varietals on Friday from noon to 2:00!

If you  haven’t tasted a Maine Dayboat Scallop, you probably don’t know what scallops are supposed to taste like.

Maine Dayboat Scallops are harvested by small vessels that ply Maine’s icy waters from December through March.  Our fishermen bring in very small quantities of super fresh, dense, pure scallops.  Their quality is unparalleled.

 Maine Dayboat scallops are the best tasting scallops available anywhere.  And I want you to understand why…

The vast majority of sea scallops are stored for many days (or weeks) before they reach consumers.  In that time they absorb water and other chemicals from the ice and solutions surrounding them. This dupes consumers into paying for water and dilutes scallop flavor and quality. Maine Dayboat Scallops are different.  I meet the fishermen at the dock to collect their scallops and I get them quickly to you.

I managed Maine’s scallop fishery from 2007 – 2011, and in that time I recognized that Maine’s small dayboat fishery produces a scallop that’s vastly superior to the artificially plumped product most consumers know. But our amazing scallops were being dumped into the traditional supply chain to be soaked and plumped on their way to consumers. I knew that was wrong; that it was bad for fishermen and bad for consumers.   So a few years ago I quit my job managing scallops and began marketing them, because Maine’s fishery produces a better scallop.  Our fishermen deserve a better price and you deserve a better scallop.  When you bite into a Maine Dayboat Scallop,  you’re tasting nothing but pure Maine scallop!

Try these scallops.  You’ll taste the difference a day makes™.
