Buying Fresh Fish in Phoenix/Scottsdale

  • w

Can anyone recommend places other than supermarkets and AJ's?

  1. Probably not the answer you're looking for, but, some restaurants sell it. The last time I was at Fish Market, I noticed swordfish was going for $20/lb.

    Fish Market
    1720 E Camelback Rd
    Phoenix, AZ

    Foster's Seafood Grille
    10510 N 90th St
    Scottsdale, AZ

      A fairly new place that gets good reviews for purchasing fresh seafood from Alaska is:

      Alaska Family Salmon
      3154 East Camelback Road
      Phoenix, AZ 85016

      It is on the northwest corner of 32nd Street and Camelback, in the Safeway strip mall. It is a few doors down to the right of Safeway, next to Delux.

      The place always seems to have customers and they have salmon, scallops, crab legs, etc.

        Check the Asian markets - both the Ranch 99 on 44th and LeeLee's at Warner/Dobson in Chandler. I can't remember...someone will, though...if the Hispanic Ranch markets carry any fresh fish..I know the one in town has a nice selection, but no doubt frozen... (and you know, anything is going to be iced and iced well and thoroughly - how many miles are we from the ocean?)

          The Phoenix Ranch Market chain most definitely does have a seafood department. You can even get fish and shrimp tacos right there. The area (like the rest of the store) is kept very clean, with minimal fishy smell.
