Top Ten New England Seafood Markets

Yankee Magazine Weighs in on Atlantic Seafood Market

“This market is the seafood gem of the lower Connecticut River valley. Owned by Lisa Feinman, everything here is as fresh as it can be. CIA-trained resident chef Jerry Doran and his staff cut all their fish fresh and make all their prepared seafood delights from scratch every day. Late spring is a good time to pay a visit, when the shad are running up the Connecticut River and fresh shad and shad roe are in plentiful supply.”

We’ve Recently Been Featured in USA Today

Nationally syndicated newspaper USA Today recently published an article about local seafood markets and the special perks customers are treated to when visiting them. Locally sourced seafood, in-depth knowledge about products and their benefits, and unbeatable freshness are all points that this article touched upon.

Sustainable food & practices as well as having the best fitting seafood for every season are additional reasons why local, independent seafood markets give you something that the big chains just can't match. We're humbled to have been featured in this article along with some of the other best seafood markets in America.

Seafood Fact or Fiction, Round Two

How to find fresh fish. The best seafood restaurants. What time of year is optimal to eat local shellfish. Just how big a jumbo shrimp must be. We have to face it – in the technical and safety – conscious world of seafood, there is a lot to know! All of this can make the topic of seafood fertile ground for tall tales and misconceptions. It’s time for another round of true or false questions to hammer down the truth about some seafood ideas that are floating around. Are they fact or fiction?

T or F: Female lobsters are known to be better tasting than male lobsters.

F (unless you really like roe)

Though this belief shows up fairly often online, it is false. This is because the meat of male and female lobsters is known to be indistinguishable in taste. Those who hold that female lobsters are the better tasting could only have an argument if roe (eggs that have not been fertilized) is their favorite part of the lobster. This is since, as might be imagined, only female lobsters can carry roe. Consequently, when that steaming lobster is put down before you at a restaurant, you need not stress about a 50% chance of being short – changed on taste.
