Market Update: 

  • PREMIUM OYSTERS INBOUND THIS WEEK: Our oyster list includes Belons, Large Pemaquids, Deer Creeks, and St. Anne. We are also featuring a unique oyster this week SAIKO OYSTERS.  Saiko in Japanese means ‘supreme’.  Harvested in Willapa Bay, WA, these oysters live up to their name.  Grown in baskets to create a naturally tumbled, smooth, brown-shelled oyster with firm meat. The flavor profile is briny and sweet with a melon finish.  Available for Wednesday 10/31 delivery.
  • Fresh Stone Crab Claw Season is open! Place your pre-orders now!
  • Martha’s Vineyard Fresh Bay Scallops:  A specialty item that must be experienced in order to be appreciated.  Hand-harvested in the triangle region of Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod Bay, and Nantucket.  The season officially opens Nov. 1st and we expect to see product in the upcoming weeks.
  • Fresh Whole Spanish Mackerel.
  • Beautiful 8 lb. and up Queen Snapper.
  • Lake Fish: Walleye is still plentiful.  We expect to continue to see Medium Walleye for the next few weeks.  However, only a limited amount of fresh or frozen Jumbo Walleye will be available.  Yellow Perch: As we head towards the end of October the Fresh Lake Erie Yellow Perch season has began to slow down.  We are expecting our fisherman to meet their quotas for the season within the next few weeks.
  • Mahi:  Mahi is in great supply and we are expecting to see big, beautiful fish arriving throughout the Winter.  Price is down and would make an excellent menu or special option.
  • Sword: The market is still tight on sword, however, the full moon at the end of last week should bring some relief in pricing this week.
  • Alaskan Halibut: The closure for Alaskan Halibut is early November.  Halibut prices have stayed consistently high over the past few weeks.
  • Norwegian Halibut: farm-raised, amazing quality, 10lb. and up fish.
