Fish market in Vancouver?
I recently moved to Vancouver and am enjoying the return to the west coast and great fish. I am looking for new fish markets and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I live in Kitsilano and am happy to drive a ways. I have been shopping at 7 seas on W. 4th, but am wondering if there is more out there.
There is one up at Oakridge Mall right near the library and Kins Farm Market. Can't remember the name..
T&T Supermarket @ the edge of Chinatown is well run and has some excellent specials on Seafood.
A new player in the market is
Finest at Sea
4675 Arbutus Street
I've had excellent product/service at both the Oakridge store-can't remember the name either-and Sakanaya.
There's a great seafood market in East Vancouver, located on Rupert Street and E. 22nd Ave (across the street from 7-11) called Rupert Fish Market. It specializes in European fish (like Bacalhau) along with a great selection of fresh West Coast seafood (clams, salmon, prawns, and huge crabs, etc ...). They also have a bunch of freezers where you can get fish cut for sushi, lobster tails, and smoked fish. 604-435-6660.
I also live in Kits and make a weekly pilgrimage to Granville Island for fresh seafood. The Lobster Man is the best place for shellfish that I have found in BC. I also go to the dock to pick up salmon if I am ever entertaining a large group (steamed whole salmon is easy but dramatic). Oh, it also gives me an excuse to have some fish and Chips at Go Fish.....
