Sign Up for the Fearless Fish Fish Share Program
Get a weekly share of local fish delivered to convenient locations for pickup.
Fearless Fish seafood market on the West Side of Providence is bringing more fish to more people. The shop has started a fish share program that allows customers to sign up to get a weekly or bi-weekly package of seasonal, local fish (filleted or whole fish), delivered to a location of their choosing. The fish share program includes wild caught fish landed in one of our New England ports each week, which may be species like Acadian redfish, hake, pollock, monkfish, skate wing, black bass, flounder, sea robin and more.
Fearless Fish market simply wants to make it easier for people to eat more fresh local fish, so it’s teaming up with other local food and wine shops to serve as pickup points that are more convenient for the shopper. The program is also allowing Fearless Fish to expand beyond Providence into Newport and Warren. Some of the new pickup points include Stock Culinary Goods and Campus Fine Wines in Providence, Newport Wine Cellar and Gourmet, Prica Farina in Warren and Cork and Brew in Pawtuxet Village, coming later in March. Expanding beyond the Providence storefront will also give customers the opportunity to try new types of fish they might not choose themselves and it’s also a way to increase fish consumption without even having to think about it.
“We are planning to expand around the state (mostly around the bay). We’ve found that partnering with small, independent, specialty food and wine shops has been a win win,” says Fearless Fish owner Stu Meltzer. “Pair that with the fact that we are bringing people local fish and we have a nice symbiotic Rhode Island system going.”
The cost of the Fearless Fish fish share is only $18 a week for two servings (about one pound of fillet or two pounds of whole fish) and $36 a week for four servings of fish (about two pounds of fillet or four pounds of whole fish). Every week, fish share participants will also receive an email explaining which fish they will be getting with recommendations for how to cook it. You can put a weekly share on hold, if you give them three days advance notice. Find out more information here.
