Fresh fish - where to buy?

Besides wholefoods, where can I get fresh fish to buy? I would prefer to purchase from locals instead of a grocer store! Besides, wholefoods is way too expensive even in oklahoma!

1. Re: Fresh fish - where to buy?

There is a fish market in Honokowai at the 5A RentaSpace strip mall.

I tried to trip a fisherman as he darted under the Lahaina Banyan

Tree yesterday. He was holding a nice Mahi Mahi by the tail and

delivering it to a restaurant.

A big 700 lb marlin broke the hoist at the Lahain Harbor last week.

The gears are worn out or something. They use it to haul out even

heavier engines so I hope Harbors Division orders a new one

We just let the experts(on arrival and departure from OGG) at Paia Fish Market choose, prepare, and cook the fish for us. We bought fish at Honokawai Fish Market one trip but the costs ended up being the same (but you get side dishes with a fish plate at PFM) and there isn't the chance of you screwing it up by grilling it yourself! We stick to grilling chicken, pineapple, Kula onions, and hamburgers. Once we get settled in, we're usually satisfied eating poke from the market and coconut shrimp at Aloha Mixed Plate for seafood...

The Fish Market in Honokawai, Eskimo Candy in Kihei, Foodland (any of them), and Lahaina Farms Market in Lahaina would be some good choices.

I've gotten extremely good fish from, believe it or not, Costco. The sashimi there is ono!

Am a good cook and lived in the Caribbean and Mexico for awhile so prefer to cook even on vacation. One other problem is having celiac. I had sushi on Oahu and was glutened! They somehow got my food close to something with gluten. Ugh

Some soy sauces do have gluten. Check online for gluten free soy sauce.

Most soy sauces have gluten. Instead, buy wheat-free Tamari (Japanese version of soy sauce).
