Looking to buy good fresh fish in Ogunquit or Perkins cove. Don't want to have to drive to the fish market in York all the time.Thanks!

    When we don't want to drive to York, we get fish at the Wells Beach Lobster Pound. We got some great scallops there last week.

      Sounds counterintuitive, but you can't buy fresh fish in Ogunquit. You can get lobsters and steamers fresh at Beach Plum Farm north of town on Route 1, but that's as close as it gets.

        thanks...we go to Beach Plum quite a bit. Was hoping to find somewhere i could walk to. I guess we could stock up in York and freeze it...talk about counterintuitive!!

        I have heard that you can buy lobsters off the boats when they come in at Perkins Cove. This may just be the businesses in town (as opposed to private citizens) but you could ask some fishermen over there if it's true (and if they have other fish for purchase). It's probably some early hour that this happens ... some day I will figure out if it's true but, if you find it is, let chow know!

            It is is not legal without proper liscencing. If it were me, I would drive to Portland.

            Mike's Clam Shack on Route 1 has a Fish Market-I am not particularly fond of Mike's but the do have what looks like a resonably sized separate fish market which might be worth a try.

                  I was there just yesterday, but didn't notice if they have fish and can't remember from previous visits. I'll check next time I'm there.
