Seafood at Little Italy Farmers' Market

jturtle Aug 7, 2010 08:44 PM

Quick question(s), what is the name of the vendor who has the fresh seafood, shellfish and ceviche? He was there today with his son I think? Also, does he go to any other markets? Thanks!

    Poppa's Fresh Fish is run by Mark. Also at the North Park Thursday market.

      I believe it's Mark Lane from Poppa's Fresh Fish. I've seen him at Adam's Avenue farmer's market, and, from the looks of his Facebook page, he's at a few others:

        Thanks! The ceviche looked amazing but didn't have a cooler to take with me and wasn't heading home right away!

          We've been regularly packing a cooler with ice packs just for bringing home fish. The ceviche IS really good!

            That might have to be the plan. Am camping this weekend and was thinking some of the fish would be amazing over the campfire.

        There are actually two different ones.

          Do both sell ceviche? I thought only Poppa's did, but I could be wrong.

            I know both did. Not sure about currently.

            The one on the west side of date street does for sure.
