Decent fish supplier in Markham?

Hi all,

So I left the downtown core and moved to Markham Village (no, really....it was a good move! ;) ).

One thing I miss is being able to go out and buy sashimi-grade fish to make sushi and sashimi at home. Does anyone know of a decent fish market in Markham? I've tried a couple of the Chinese supermarkets with not much luck.

I did try J-Town a wile back but found the selection somewhat limited and the prices high.

TIA.

    For that quality of fish the prices will be high, you get what you pay for. An alternative to j-town is Taro fish, they used to occupy the j-town stall but have moved more south to North York.

      i second taro, they have very good quality products and the price isn't entirely unreasonable, you do get what you pay for.

      A little west of Markham Village but I go to the Korean Supermarket on Yonge. Just come west on Steeles. I find the prices excellent for all kinds of sashimi including red tuna - they have fresh and frozen.

        I have NO IDEA if this place is any good, but I've been meaning to check them out:

        M & H Fish Market
        5051 Highway 7 (right across from Markville Mall)

        If you do go, please report back!
