Fresh fish at St. Mark's church green market

hungrycomposer Jun 2, 2009 01:41 PM

There's a new vendor at St. Mark's church green market (tuesdays, happening as I post) called Sea Tuck. They have great, local fish, and are a much needed addition to our local market. But they were complaining that business is very slow. So go support them and keep good fish in the neighborhood! If not, we probably won't see them next week.

    Hooray! What kinds of offerings? Do you recall anything specific on their list?

    I was planning to get to the St Marks Greenmarket this morning (a friend said they had shelling peas) but ran out of time.

      I bough blackfish, but there were also razor clams. clams, oysters, flounder, fluke, bluefish, weak (sea trout), scallops, skate, and more. Unfortunately they said that if they didn't sell more fish they might not be back. It would be a loss, we could really use a good source for fish here.

        They're back today, with the same types of fish, plus monkfish, tuna, swordfish and crabs. Got me a dozen clams. Let's hope they're back next week too.

          The tuna was clearly old...gray-brown...I bought some black fish (tautog) and it's ok although not nearly as fresh as what I found last week from Blue Moon in Union Square.
