Indulge in Fresh Seafood at the 2017 Grand Tasting Event

Enjoy bivalves and other shellfish from the raw bars of local restaurants at Northshore Magazine’s annual Grand Tasting.


On March 30, join such vendors as Brine, Michael's Harborside, and Sea Level Oyster Bar, which will be serving up an assortment of local oysters, lobster tasting spoons, mini crab cakes, and more at Northshore magazine’s third annual Grand Tasting & Culinary Marketplace at the Blue Ocean Event Center in Salisbury. 

Celebrity chefs, exquisite wines, and tantalizing tastes from the region’s top restaurants, and gourmet food and wine shops come together once again for this fun foodie event. Scrumptious savory and sweet nibbles from local food artisans—making everything from farmhouse cheese to hard cider to award-winning hand-made chocolate treats—will be on offer. Also, local libations of every kind will be poured. Learn about the variety of sophisticated pours from local wine purveyors who will educate you on all the ABCs of the art of wine tasting and help you find what is perfect for your palate.  

Admission to the event offers samples of gourmet foods from the North Shore’s vibrant culinary scene, fine wines, signature cocktails, live cooking demonstrations, live music, and more!  

A portion of the proceeds benefits The Greater Boston Food Bank, serving communities across the North Shore and all of eastern Massachusetts. The Greater Boston Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. In 2015, they distributed more than 54 million pounds of food, enough to provide healthy meals to as many as 545,000 people.
