New to the area

Greetings All,

We are new to the Merrimack Valley region and would like some hints. We aren't as much into dining out as preparing our own fine dining experience using the freshest and best ingrediants. I have not been overly impressed with the selection of fresh fish and cuts of meat in the Andover/ Lawrence area. I have visited Butcher Boy and the seafood place next door, the seafood place in downtown Andover. Whole Foods is ok as are both Mckinnes(sp)? in Salem and Havehill Meat Market. Are we missing any hidden jewels? Prefer not to drive into Boston or that immediate area. Have already explored farmers markets in the immediate area and am quite pleased. Discovered Wilson's Farm and envision many trips that far south. Plan to explore the North Shore area but would appreciate any input before setting out.

Thanks in advance
