We have lived in the Washington, DC, metro area for more than 25 years. We have been visiting the market from almost the beginning. This is one of the most interesting places to see a cross section of residents of the city. There are customers from all quadrants of the city. It is a great place for tourists as well because it is near the L' Enfant plaza metro station. You also get to meet the fishmongers who mostly hail from the seafood culture of Eastern Maryland like Smith Island.
There are several vendors selling ready to eat seafood as well as those selling uncooked product. We especially enjoy the quality of the product sold by Captain White's, one of the long time vendors there. We purchase all sorts of things from Carolina shrimp, clams, oysters, fish and for special occasions whole lobsters. There products are first rate in freshness with very competitive prices. We enjoy bringing things home and cooking them and having wonderful family dinners. We enjoy ourselves and these are some of the best memories for our family. We all know how important it is to bring your family together around the table! Go visit and bring something healthy home for dinner!
