Fresh Sardines

Does anyone have any idea where I can find fresh sardines - I live in Ft. Lauderdale but will drive to get them. Fresh anchovies would be a bonus but I am not counting on those - I'l get my fix next month in Italy! Thanks for your suggestions.

    You might try phoning Captain Frank's just off I-95 in Boynton Beach. Wonderful old-school fishmonger run by an Italian family. they sell many Italian products (San Marzano tomatoes, Recca anchovies, Sicilian tuna in jars, etc etc); I would think they would be a good bet. Open limited hours on Sunday, too.

      Try the seafood market in Miami called Casablanca,hopefully I spelled that right? besides being an awsome market,they have been highly visited by many top chef's and on T.V .
      Wish I still lived in Miami it was my place to go to.

        Casablanca does carry them - sometimes but not today! Call ahead. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

        Whole Foods Market in Boca Raton usually has sardinies. The stores in Fl Lauderdale and Plantation probably do as well, just call.

          Whole Foods in Ft. Lauderdale only has them both packaged in a marinade but not fresh!

            Sorry about that. DW says Whole Foods in Boca Raton for sure and possibly Coral Springs as well.

            Did you call Finster Murphys? If you can't find them, you can always order them at G&B Oyster, where they grill up some plump ones.

              Thanks! They don't always have them (Finster's) but placed me on a call list for when they do get them.
