Once members tried pollock as part of their share, they liked the mild flavor and firm texture for everything from chowders to fishcakes to fillets. The fishermen were surprised by this because although they…See More

There she would trade her fresh farm eggs for her weekly baked goods and a treat for us. Then across the bridge to Harbor Fish Market. Howard Latham would take eggs for fish, and then trade some of the eggs with another vendor while holding some aside for his family. After… Continue
