There are plenty of fish in the sea, but there’s only one Fulton Fish Market.
Opened in 1822, New York City’s Fulton Fish Market is one of the oldest fish markets in the United States. Well before the Brooklyn Bridge was even built, the market at South Street Seaport thrived with fishing boats and fishmongers bartering and bantering over stalls heaving with fresh fish. Each night the colorful market would come to life with its cast of characters, eager chefs and curious tourists, all mingling over bushels of oysters, crates of lobsters and a kaleidoscope of sea creatures from near and far. Perhaps more than any other institution, the Fulton Fish Market captured the spirit and tradition of old New York.
Today, the market continues to capture the New York spirit through its evolution and continued leadership in bringing the best seafood from the dock to your table. In 2005 the market relocated to its new home in the Hunts Point Bronx "Food Hive". The new 400,000-square-foot market sees up to two million pounds of fresh seafood arrive every day, making it the second largest fish market in the world (after Tokyo). While the location has changed, the vibrance and characters have not, and each night the market roars to life with the day's freshest catch and tallest tales.
