Hi. I'm going to be in Orlando shortly and would like to know if you know of a fish market in or around Orlando? I don't mean frozen fish in the supermarket but a good store where they sell fresh fish? I don't mind a bit of a drive since I'll have a car. Thanks for your help!

    I think both whole foods and fresh market do a good job with seafood. I second the mention of Lombardi's.

    China Marketplace on Mills has an array of the type of seafood found in Cantonese dishes still swimming in a tank.

    I go to New Smyrna to buy my shrimp, as you cannot trust what is sold here. Most of it has been sprayed with STP to retain the water weight and its awful.
