Sustainable Nantucket’s NantucketGrown™ Campaign which includes our brand and publication, promotes and encourages the consumption of locally grown food on Nantucket. Our NantucketGrown™ brand provides farmers, restaurants and food producers with an instantly recognizable branding campaign that will indicate to consumers that the food they are purchasing was grown, processed, and distributed on Nantucket. The NantucketGrown™ publication highlights the local growers, artisans and food producers who participate in SN’s Farmers & Artisans Market, and restaurants and food producers who source locally, and is designed to raise awareness about, and expand the market for local food and artisanal products.
Sustainable Nantucket’s NantucketGrown™ Magazine is an annual publication dedicated to local food and healthy living on Nantucket Island. Our articles provide updates on our SN programs and feature community members who are contributing to the the local food movement through their business practices, home gardens, and more!
Promote your business to seasonal and year-round residents by advertising in our 2017 publication! NantucketGrown™ Magazine is available from June to October at Sustainable Nantucket Farmers & Artisans Market and at Stop & Shop, Bartlett’s Farm, and the Hy-Line Cruises Terminal year-round.
Don’t miss out, ad contracts are due by April 15th!

Sustainable Nantucket recently received a generous grant from the Community Foundation’s ReMain Nantucket Fund. This funding will directly support SN’s 2016 NantucketGrown educational programming. A very heartfelt thank you to our friends at the Community Foundation!
Support the local fishing industry and expand your seafood awareness when you participate in our NantucketGrown Local Catch Campaign this July! Each week a number of NantucketGrown restaurants will feature an under-utilized fish on their menu. These are fish that taste good, are plentiful in our waters, and when you order these instead of less sustainable fish populations, you are helping to promote both healthy fish populations and the fishermen that harvest them!
As a fun incentive, we will be raffling local seafood prizes to participants! To enter to win a “Clambake for 4” provided by Nantucket Seafoods:
Order the NantucketGrown Local Catch of the Week.
Take a photo of it.
Post it on Facebook and tag Sustainable Nantucket and, if possible, the restaurant.
Customers who perform the above steps with each featured fish at 4 different restaurants are entered by Sustainable Nantucket in another, separate raffle to win the “Weekly Local Catch for a Family of 4 in August” (2 lbs of local fish per week) provided by Nantucket Fresh Catch!
So visit these participating restaurants each week of July — and try something new and delicious!

In an effort to further strengthen our local food economy as well as the overall economic and environmental stability of our island community, Sustainable Nantucket along with Seth and Angela Raynor—chefs and owners of the Pearl and Boardinghouse—will be co-hosting a gathering for local chefs, growers, fishermen, and food producers on Sunday, June 7th., from 1:30–3:30.
Our thanks to the Nantucket Yacht Club for generously providing the location!
This gathering will give farmers, fishermen, and producers a chance to meet directly with Nantucket’s chefs to form, or to reaffirm mutually beneficial relationships.
We are hoping each farmer, fish provider, and value-added food producer can create a one-page “bio” sheet that lists what you intend to have available during the 2015 season, as well as an overview of your business and some general biographical and contact information. Sustainable Nantucket is happy to help by producing multiple copies of your info sheet to hand out to chefs. If you would like us to do this, please feel free to email us your info sheets by Monday, June 1st. Your copies will be available for pick-up by noon on Friday, June 5thor we can take them to the meeting for you. We would also like to offer food producers the opportunity to bring in samples of their products.
Please RSVP to Dennie, our office manager, at your earliest convenience, and tell us whether you are interested in bringing samples of your food products. Dennie can be reached via email at email@example.com or on our office line at 508-228-3399.
