For more than 75 years this tiny storefront fish market has showcased some of the finest local products: crab, salmon, sole, rockfish, sand dabs, lingcod, and oysters as well as fish from other areas and a fine selection of smoked seafood. It's equally popular as a lunch destination for the steamy bowls of chowder and oysters on the half shell served at the old-fashioned marble counter. And if you like fish for breakfast, you can find it here.
