Fishmonger in area - help please...

  • w

More "new to North OC" questions...

We live in Buena Park, right next to the Fullerton border - right near Los Coyotes. Does anyone know of a good, reputable fish market in the nearby area? When living in Long Beach, I would go to Jimmy's fish market very often, but now am loathe to drive 30 minutes (quite often more with traffic) to get fresh fish. The Long Beach Bristol Farms is a little closer and has decent stuff, but I would really LOVE to know if there is a place closer in Brea, Fullerton, La Habra that has fresh fish daily and is reputable. Any and all recommendations are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Santa Monica Seafood has 3 locations, one is in Orange, which is not too far from you. I have posted a link to their website below. I shop at the Santa Monica location which is awesome, and wall to wall shoppers at times! the Orange and Newport locations have a bit less selection...but if more people would shop there I bet they would carry more variety.

    1. Go to one of the Asian commmunities and find one of the big super Asian supermarkets. 99 Ranch is a big chain - look in the yellow pages.

      I told my mother about Santa Monica Seafood near me and she asked only one question before losing interest - are the fish live? The answer is no....
