A day in the Life of a Clammer Mon, 09/1/03 9:47 AM (permalink)
For those of us who live on Boston’s North Shore, the clamming industry is such a part of our daily lives that we often forget that many who live outside of the area do not always have a clear understanding of how soft shelled clams are harvested. For this reason, The Village Restaurant, has created a very special photographic documentary on our website entitled “A Day in the Life of a Clammer.” Clams seem to be a popular topic on the Roadfood forum, and I thought this feature might be of interest to many in the community. Wake at dawn and travel “down river” with one of our favorite local diggers; witness nature’s bounty harvested by hand, and as the tide rises, return home where the daily prize is “shucked” by representatives of three generations of a family business. The presentation can be found on our Cape Ann page:

    Great photos. Thanks for the tip. I am stuck at work laboring on Labor Day and have a great appreciation for any diversion

      Just doing some old surfing and stumbled across this. The Village Rest. is truly another great spot to stop at in Essex it's right down the street from Woodmans. Click on the link in the first post and see what the Stearns had to say of this spot. Chow Jim
