Charlotte NC Region DOES have a Fresh Fish Market! Meet Clean Catch Fish Market!I just love this place SO much that I visit at least once a week or more. Last year when I heard a fish market was coming to Selwyn Avenue I drove by every week to see if it was open. I am not sure who was more excited when they opened....the owners or me!
Clean Catch Fish Market receives fresh fish (never frozen) daily, except for Monday when they are closed. The sign says "Gone Fishing". Yes, they do have a sense of humor. The fish is shipped to them whole, so it is easy for them to be sure it is the quality they expect for their customers. Not that familiar with how to cook/serve fish? No worries! The terrific staff can help you. Most were trained as chefs and can explain how to cook, as well as what to serve with your fish. The board and your receipt will show the name of the fish, where it was caught, and HOW it was caught. And yes, they do have sashimi grade fish and shellfish.
Weekends can be busy, so follow my lead. Text in your order, it will be ready when you arrive, and you don't have to worry about them running out. I receive their Tweets, daily Facebook page, and emails to know what is available each day. Here is a sample of today's offering. The fish market is located at 2820 Selwyn Avenue in a trendy area of Myers Park in Charlotte within Tranquil Court. The neighboring businesses and restaurants are worth visiting, too.
I picked up some Escolar for dinner tonight and snapped some on the spot photos. I decided I just HAD to share one of my favorite stores on my Blog. Their Facebook Page will give you an even better take on Clean Catch Fish Market. Yea! Charlotte NC Region DOES have a Fresh Fish Market!
