Moving to Marblehead--need chow and food shopping guidance

butterfat | Mar 13, 2010 05:22 AM

hello hounds,

I am hoping to take advantage of your wise counsel as we prepare to move from Cambridge to Marblehead in the coming weeks. I love Marblehead but I get the sense that some of the food options there are a bit precious/silly/touristy/overpriced. So, I'd love to hear of any gens you may know of there or in easy driving distance.

We have a toddler and don't really dine out much, though kid-friendly restaurants would be good to know about. In general, I'm really seeking three different things:

--recs for lowbrow awesome chow (roast beef sandwiches, donuts, seafood shacks, ice cream, etc.)

--recs for a Russo's substitute (is there such a thing?)--affordable abundant produce

--CSA/farm stand recs in the area

Thanks in advance!!
