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.

Two Great Stores are Better than One

A riddle: What do Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night painting, the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles, the sound of a symphony, and the color green have in common? The magic of a winning combination. Just the right components came together  and, in joining, became something greater than any could have become alone. Think of it for a minute. Van Gogh would not have gotten very far as an artist had he painted the canvas in only blue. A single musical note does not make an impression until it unites with others in just the right way to make music. Winning combinations also occur in seafood, and result in meals to remember. Pairing great fish with just the right produce makes it something more extraordinary than either ingredient would have been on its own. I’m reminded of the salmon and asparagus recipe  from the April blog post. The fish and the asparagus worked together. The asparagus was warmed with a meatier flavor while the fish took on a new tang from the asparagus and lemon juice. Here are some of the types of seafood available in Connecticut now and / or into the summer, as well as the fruit and vegetable sides that bring out their best qualities.
