Wholesale Scallops are Best From Nantucket
Considered the sweetest, most tender wholesale scallops on the market, Cape and Nantucket Bay scallops are favored across the globe. Cape and Nantucket Bay scallops possess very high levels of glycogen (sugar) content that set them apart from the rest. Furthermore, they caramelize like no other, making them a chefs favorite.
The native eelgrass surrounding Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard, serves as nursery for these succulent wholesale scallops during their short season. In fact, Cape and Nantucket Bay’s are recognized as the last significant wild scallop population on the East Coast.
The ratio of supply / demand for Cape and Nantucket Bay scallops is unparalleled. The limited supply and crucial demand of these wholesale scallops make them a more expensive seasonal item, but their phenomenal taste makes them worth every penny.
