“This fish was in the ocean or sea yesterday and it’s in our case today. This fish is fresher than fresh!
From the ocean to your plate in a day!”
Above is the motto for our Fresh Flight Seafood program at Festival Foods. We have been buying from our fishermen for several months now and thought it would be nice to introduce a few of them.
Captain Jim Ford Newburyport, Mass. works sustainable trawling for cod, haddock and flounder
Tim and Jane Wilkes fish for King and Chinook salmon in Kachemak Bay, located in the lower end of Cook Inlet. This salmon weighs 90-100 pounds!
Simeon Daigle of Homer, Alaska overnights fish to Festival Foods 6 nights a week!
Mahi Mahi and other seafood is caught by hook and line and overnighted from Hawaii by Garden and Valley Isle Seafood Company.
Look for the Fresh Flight signs in our seafood case to get the freshest, best tasting seafood available- 24 hours from the ocean to our store! Varieties change according to what is available so call ahead if you are looking for a specific item.
