ISO fish market open Labor Day
is it too much to ask? A fish market open on a holiday? Close to Arlington/ Cambridge? I'll be needing haddock or cod & mussels......
I'm afraid it probably is too much to ask - I've never known of a fish market open on Sundays, let alone major holidays. You may need to shop on Friday and freeze your fish until Monday.
I would guess the fish market at Summer Shack will be open on Labor Day, as it is part of the restaurant. They have a pretty good selection albeit fairly expensive. But what good seafood isn't?

The fish markets on the cape are open on Labor Day. I know this is too far away for you - not to mention the traffic leaving the cape that day!!! If you do not want to freeze the fish you buy I have a great idea for keeping it fresh a day or so longer than usual. Get a few of those plastic blue blocks you put in coolers. Freeze them and put them on top of the fish in the meat drawer of your refrigerator. I read this tip in a magazine a few years ago and have been doing this ever since. It really works. I have passed this information on to friends and neighbors and they report excellent results. I live on the cape and fish is readily available here.
Thanks all for your suggestions! I decided to change my menu instead of making the seafood stew. I'll make the stew another time :)
