Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good day  Chefs and Buyers,
 
In addition to the sweet weather around us, we have Sweet Neck oysters available from Martha's Vineyard. These exquisite hand cultivated oysters will only be around for a few more weeks, and then we won't see them again until November. We have a few Pemaquid Mussels available for Wednesday with our next shipment scheduled to arrive Friday.
 
Lots of sharp fish today, but the real standouts are:
  • Trap caught Long Island porgies
  • large (1.75lb average) black sea bass from Rhode Island
  • dayboat baseball bat Cod from Chatham
  • short trip Jersey fluke (mostly over 2lbs, many doormat sized over 4lbs)
  • and some desirable sized (2-4lbs) spotted tile from North Carolina.
 
Due in tonight: Icelandic cod and halibut, Irish organic Salmon (Loch Duart supplies remain low), Spanish Turbot, and Panama Mahi.

Have a great day,
