Buying Fresh Fish in Phoenix/Scottsdale

Warren Nov 6, 2005 10:42 AM

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

    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.

      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.

        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
