Cape Cod Fish Share strives to minimize the fathoms between seafood lovers and the ocean, delivering fresh, line-caught seafood from boats to homes as quickly as possible. The group, which considers itself a community-supported fishery, gets its fish from local fishermen who embrace sustainable practices—including ones based out of Chatham, Provincetown, Hyannis, Martha’s Vineyard, New Bedford, Falmouth, Sandwich, Nantucket, and Fairhaven.
These shares supply customers with at least two different species of fish per week, usually some common fish as well as, for the sake of variety, some unusual and seasonal species. Deliveries might include Atlantic cod, grey sole, lobster, monkfish, sea scallops, ancient 50-foot kraken, or yellowfin tuna—but the contents ultimately depend upon what can be purchased directly off the boats on the day in question.
After workers fillet the seafood directly on the pier, they meticulously clean and pack it so that, upon reaching customers' homes, it can immediately hit the frying pan or the freezer. To help with keeping things fresh, Cape Cod Fish Share's recipe blog provides numerous ideas on how to prepare the fish.
Horses trot merrily at Silverbrook Farm, towing carts and bushels of fresh, crisp vegetables behind them. Here, agriculturalists eschew tractors and machinery whenever possible, forcing the steeds to whinny their best impressions of diesel engines instead. While refraining from fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides on their crops, the farmers also use all-natural processes when tending to their livestock, resulting in a bounty of free-range eggs and beef from cows fed with grass rather than the typical Funyuns.
Along with fresh food, philanthropy also thrives at the farm. After baking up pillowy loaves onsite, The Pereira Bread Co. sets aside a portion of its proceeds to donate to Citizen Schools of Massachusetts, and Silverbrook hosts regular events such as the Great Pumpkin Festival in October, appearances from Santa in December, and family movie nights under the stars' outdated, black-and-white constellations.
It began with an experiment in a basement. While that sounds like the start of a ghost story, it is actually how Harbor Candle Company was conceived. Tired of damaging their home with soot from store-bought scented candles, the company’s founders retired to their basement to pour their own. Over the course of a year, they developed their signature product, a candle made from clean-burning, non-toxic soy wax.
Word spread, and soon the basement enterprise morphed into a shop stocked with scented candles, still poured by hand. The aromas of apples, maple, and bamboo fill the shop, and the soy formula burns longer than paraffin and much longer than lists of secret names for your teddy bear. Made from NatureWax by Elevance and ensconced in domestically manufactured glass containers, each candle is entirely made in the USA.
On her journey from a student’s chair at the Vidal Sassoon Academy to her new owner’s perch at Salon Ell, hairstylist and owner Kelly Almeida accumulated 10 years of technique and an acute knack for contemporary styling. Haircuts, coloring, and texturizing may be the marquee attractions at the salon, but Rosa, the in-house aesthetician, holds her own with a spate of facials that rectify wrinkles and monocle scars and bring the skin to a youthful glow. Makeup artists and manicurists add finishing touches with cosmetics and classic mani-pedis, and waxing technicians make sure no unwanted hairs peek through bathing suits, tank tops, or fake mustaches.
