Fresh calamari on the North Shore?

C. Fox | Jul 12, 2002 05:21 PM

C. Simon's post on frozen calamari reminds me that that is all I've been able to find. I've asked around for fresh squid, but no dice. Rowand Seafood in Beverly only gets it at Christmas. They have frozen year round, though. At Gloria Foods, the Italian market in town, the nice man said he didn't carry it, then called the other Beverly fish market, Homeport, for me. They don't carry it either. Where might she go, the nice Gloria man asked? Boston, says the Homeport man. And I'm beginning to believe him. Andy's Seafood on Rte. 1 in Saugus - nada. Route 1 Seafood in Rowley - nada. Stop & Shop - you guessed it - and I could swear I saw it there once. Maybe it was at Christmas. What gives? Can I be the only one? Or does everybody use the frozen stuff?
