Does anyone have a good recomendation for an excellent Fish market in Queens? Would prefer the Flushing-Bayside area.

    I use Park's on 149 St & Willets Point Blvd. in Whitestone. Their prices are a little high sometimes, but their fish is always immaculate, and they're very friendly.

    I do not recommend the fish market on Francis Lewis near 36th-ish Ave. VERY high prices, and very very little selection, and so little stock that I'm wary of their turnover.

      I second the vote on Park's Seafood, always impeccable fish...also any of the H-arts in the Flushing-Bayside area have excellent fish and they are do busy that high turnover is assured.

        Since you mentioned Flushing, you should try many of the Chinese markets in the Flushing Chinatown area. They usually sell fruits/vegetables in the front and meat/fish in the back. Some of the fish are swimming in tanks, so they are still alive when you buy it.
