She's got her permits and will be selling fresh fish every Tuesday from 1 to 6:30PM at the When Pigs Fly bakery outlet in Coolidge Corner. She starts this coming Tuesday, Dec 21st. Cash and checks only, no credit cards.

She requests that you pre-order if at all possible, but expects to have some quantity of extra fish available each week for walk-ins.

Contact her at fishlady19@verizon.net for ordering, prices and more info.

  1. Just wanted to bump this up -- we got fish from her last week and it was great!

    1. Yup - got two gorgeous pieces of salmon filet for Christmas Eve dinner - nicely cleaned and scaled - price was comparable with Whole Foods, etc. and darn if it wasn't really fresh and delicious! Wholeheartedly recommend.

      And thanks again to the Chowhounds for posting about this. Would never have known...

      1. Love her and her fish too! Salmon tastes like it's straight out of the ocean.

        Between Thatcher Farm and Cyndi, I'm at the supermarket half as much. So happy about that.

        1. In case anyone is interested - this is her weekly mailing -
