Seafood

You’d have to go down and meet the fishermen at the docks to get a fresher – or wider – selection of seafood than you’ll find in our Markets. The stars of our show are wild salmon – fresh Alaskan in season (May-September); Bruce Gore-caught, fresh-frozen Alaskan salmon year-round; Lummi Island reefnet salmon (July-October); Copper River salmon (usually available only for about a month, starting in mid-May); and, as available, Aleutia Sockeye Salmon Fillets. Alaska is a well-managed, sustainable fishery and the Lummi method is said to be the most sustainable method in the world. Alaskan Halibut is another show stopper – it’s usually available fresh every month except November-February when you can find Bruce Gore-caught frozen halibut.

Here are some other highlights of our selection:

  • Kodiak Pacific Cod (January/February) (Note – This fish was formerly called “True” Cod)
  • Fresh King Crab (October-January)
  • Local Dungeness Crab (Just about year-round)
  • Spot Prawns (April-December)
  • Dinglebar Ling Cod (May/June)
