Went to Market Basket in Newburyport today. The quality and price were both outstanding...perhaps a seasonal thing ..or even a seasonal, Newburyport thing.
HUGE, natural dry sea scallops 8.99/lb
fresh tuna, swordfish 8.99/lb
wild salmon, fresh haddock, pollack 3.99/lb
farmed salmon 4.99/lb
fresh bluefish, monkfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, and some kind of shark 6.99/lb
Wild salmon was delicious and I put pollack in freezer for chowder. All the above was fresh and there was little frozen product on display (besides shrimp, calamari etc) and it all looked really good.
I've never seen this kind of selection/value at any of my local groceries. I may have to go to another local MB tomorrow to see if it was a fluke (no pun intended.)
