Does anyone know where to buy fresh herring in Boston/Cambridge/North? I went to Fresh Pond Seafood today and they say they never carry it. I want to try pickling my own, so buying it salted, or already pickled, defeats the purpose.
You might try calling some of the local Russian stores, like Bazaar or Berezka. They all have freshly marinated herring, and while I don't know for sure whether they make it themselves or bring it in, they might know a source for fresh.
