Where can I buy Fresh Sardines?

  • c

Can anyone suggest a place to buy fresh sardines retail in Manhattan? We have enjoyed them in restaurants but want to try cooking them at home.

  1. Central Fish Market on Ninth Ave and 39th St.

    1. they often have them at the citarella on 3rd ave @ approx. 76th street -- probably best to call ahead first.

        I have seen them recently at Garden of Eden on 14th at 5th for around $6/pound.

        1. i was just at the fish market on 39 or 40 st. on 9 ave. this week got some nice sardines for 3.49 lb. and i notice they had sashimi grade tuna , which i never saw before in a regular fish market. this market is not central fish but another store close by it.
