Weaver Street Market is excited to announce a new partnership with local seafood supplier Locals Seafood! Starting on Wednesday, April 27, all of our stores will be stocked with a supply of fresh, responsibly sourced seafood from the North Carolina coast, every weekend through the fall. Supplies will include fresh sea scallops, backfin crab meat, and a weekly assortment of filet fish from Black Sea Bass to Tuna. We will also have their IQF (individually quick frozen) NC shrimp and sea scallops in our freezer cases year round. Check our Facebook page for weekly availability as well as great information and recipes for the different species offered.
Locals Seafood started in 2010 with a cooler full of shrimp and a pick-up truck. Now owners Lin Peterson and Ryan Speckman operate a full-time FDA-inspected processing facility in Raleigh. In their own words, they are not only a seafood aggregator but a curator of responsibly sourced local seafood. They drive to the coast three to four times a week and hand select the best quality fish. They value the personal relationships behind the products they source, which results in a better product for their customer. Every product they sell has full traceability and fast turnaround from the catch to the plate.
Check them out online at www.localsseafood.com and look for them in our stores late in the day on Wednesday!
