Fish Market in Wappingers Area?

Can anyone recommend a quality fish market in the Wappingers, Fishkill or Pougkeepse area? I'm willing to drive further if it's worth it.

      it seems to be the one thing missing from this area. I'm suprised there isn't at least one good fish monger.

    2. I swear by Gadaleto's Fish Market in New Paltz. It's the only place around where I will buy fish, and I'm very picky. Steve Krause, the head monger, is really helpful in sourcing unusual or hard to find seafood, as well. Check it out.

        Thanks, I don't make it over to New Paltz often but I'll definately check it out if I do.

      2. gadaleto's in new paltz.
        there's a fish place across from adams - well, across from the abandoned french restaurant - who goes down to the bronx each night, i believe, to get new fish. ocean's best seafood.

        there's a place on rte 376 in new hackensack plaza, called four maples.

        i can't comment on the freshness of them recently...

          what town is ocean's best in? Is it near the Adam's in Pougkeepsie?

            it's in POK, a few hundred yards down the road across from adams....

            I noticed the fish store on route 44 for the first time a few weeks ago when we were stuck in very slow traffic in a snowstorm. We'll try it next time we're down that way. The Adams markets have decent fish counters too. They often have fresh, never frozen Gulf shrimp for about $10/lb. and also never frozen cod and tuna. Sometimes they also have sushi grade tuna (previously frozen).

              Right now I've been relying on Adam's as well. I think their fish is decent and so far the best that I have been able to find. I'll have to try that one on rt 44.
