Anyone know if fresh sardines are available for retail sale anywhere in the city? Outside the city?
Thanks in advance.

      Whole Foods sometimes has them. Especially the monster store off of Clybourn.

        The Fish Guy had a good supply of Portuguese sardines today included in ten-dollar Tuesday, otherwise $13.95 per pound. The large Cermak Produce on North Kedzie almost always carries sardines, but there is a good chance that they are previously frozen.

          I've seen them at Treasure Island off Clybourn in the past two weeks. Can't vouch as to whether they were previously frozen or not. I hope the Fish Guy's are fresh; for almost $14 a pound they'd better be.

            I think they have them at Fresh Farms or whatever it is called by the WALMART west of 94 on Touhy.

              You can try H Mart on Touhy in Niles. ..they have wide selection of fish.

          I've gotten them at Whole Foods on Kingsbury (but they seem to only be available on weekends) and also at Dirk's on Clybourn.
