Frank's Fish Market - Still Open in Salinas

Melanie Wong | Feb 7, 201701:02 AM     1

Reading that Frank's Fish Market had sold its building in the face of eminent domain and would likely close in January knocked the wind out of this long time customer's sails. I dropped by on Friday expecting to find Frank packing up and cleaning. But no, he was open for business. The sale to the City has not closed yet and he expects to keep on until it does. He told me he's been getting offers for the big red fish sign.

He seemed to have a little less inventory on hand though. I bought a pound each of mussels and clams that he brings in every Friday. Steamed in cider, garlic, scallions and butter for dinner, they were pristine, sweetly fresh and delectable.
