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.
Who we are?
Located on the Boston Post Road in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, Atlantic Seafood Market has been serving customers since 1978.
Our seafood is so fresh…well, here’s how Christopher Brooks of the New York Times put it:
“To find fish any fresher, you’d probably have to throw out a line and catch them yourself.”
We’re obsessive about finding the highest-quality, freshest, and most local seafood.
All our prepared seafood dishes (main dishes, sides & appetizers, soups, salads) are proudly made from scratch daily by Chef Jerry, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York who has worked in 5-star, high-volume restaurants for more than 25 years who now renders his services to Atlantic Seafood, Connecticut’s best seafood market. Whether you’re looking for creamy New England Clam Chowder, Manhattan Clam Chowder, Lobster Salad, or any other gourmet seafood treat, our prepared dishes are sure to satisfy the whole family.
