The Cannery is hosting the second annual “Best Catch” Sustainable Seafood Festival on Saturday, September 14 from Noon to 4:00 pm. Best Catch will help you discover which seafood choices are best for the planet and demonstrations by top chefs like Karen Barnaby and Ian Lai will show you what is tastiest for the plate!
