The Cape Ann Farmers' Market will be holding their annual fundraiser this year at the Cape Ann Community Cinema! Join them for a dinner and movie at the cinema featuring the film 'Local Thrity', a film that follows farmer Andrea Bemis and her family as they meet seven producers from the Oregon coast to Oregon ranching country during a month-long commitment to eating foods grown or harvested within 200 miles. Maureen Aylward bring the storytelling program, Fish Tales, which she produces through the Gloucester Writers Center, back to our fundraiser with the theme “Food for Thought.” Come enjoy the community spirit, share a movie and a meal and help support the Farmer's Market.
