Quahog Week, returning Monday, May 17 - Sunday, May 23, celebrates local restaurants, markets, fishermen, and food-based businesses committed to growing the smallest state's local food economy, while shining a light on the quahog and its many uniquely RI preparations.

Rhode Island is known for its food and diverse food cultures. The state’s booming local food sector supports more than 60,000 jobs and continues to attract and inspire the imagination of entrepreneurs and innovators. The local fishing industry has been, and continues to be, a vital part of the equation. Thousands of land- and water-based businesses are supported by the industry. And local favorites like the quahog “stuffie” are enjoyed by people near and far. Quahogging has a rich history locally, supporting the livelihoods of hundreds of fishers year-round, as well as serving as a treasured pastime for Rhode Island families.

Each year, Quahog Week shines a light on this history and the overall value it provides. Throughout the week, participating restaurants and markets will feature quahog-inspired menu items and deals.
