Market Street $50 gift card giveaway

To celebrate the Market Street group of restaurants Crab Festival, we are excited to have a $50 gift card, free for one lucky reader.

First a little word about this tasty annual event though. The Market Street Crab Festival begins January 12 at all Market Street locations and runs through the end of February, offering five different kinds of crab served at least a dozen different ways. Along with mouthwatering Dungeness crab from Oregon, there is Alaska King Crab, Maryland Lump Crab, Snow Crab, and Rock Crab. It’s truly the time for enjoying crab, no matter which variety you prefer.

For diners who love sweet Dungeness crabmeat, they will find this year’s catch especially succulent. According to Nick Furman, Director of the Oregon Crab Commission, “The Oregon Dungeness crab season’s got off to a roaring start with 10 million pounds of the prized crustacean crossing the docks already, and we’re only at the beginning of the harvest.” He added: “The quality’s been excellent so far. The Dungeness are full of meat and larger than usual in some areas of the coast.”

Quality and bounty are also hallmarks of this year’s Alaska King Crab harvest. Claudia Hogue, Foodservice Marketing Director of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, says, “Alaska fisherman braved the icy water of the North Pacific and Bering Sea to harvest a wonderful catch of Alaska King Crab, timed to ensure optimum quality and sustainability. No other shellfish makes quite the impression of Alaska King Crab which is unmatched for its sweet flavor and rich texture. Alaska Crab delivers on the ‘wow’ factor.”

Market Street diners can enjoy menu choices featuring crab in appetizers, salads, and entrees with selections like Crab Ravioli, Maryland Lump Crab Cakes, Three Crab Combination (with King, Snow and Dungeness), Market Street’s Famous Large Alaska Red King Crab Legs, and a 6-Ounce Center Cut Filet King Crab Oscar – to name just a few of the delicious crab menu specials.

To put your name in the hat for the $50 gift card, all you need to do is complete the following sentence:

“Now that it is 2010, my new years resolution is…”
