Seafood at the Markets

We offer the finest local and sustainable seafood.

All four of our farmers markets are in close proximity to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, a national treasure and home to a diverse population of fish. Our seafood vendors bring us the freshest, highest quality fish available anywhere. All of their catches are sustainable, and some are offered as fresh, ready to eat seafood dishes such as ceviche. You can always depend on our fishmongers to bring you seafood your whole family will enjoy.
