It's the last weekend, for a while, to catch Bristol Bay and their amazing sockeye salmon at the Little Italy Mercato before they return to the great outdoors of Alaska.
Right about now, the salmon are retuning to cold waters, the last stop on their yearly migration. And each year, around this time, Bristol Bay Salmon Company must leave us here at the Mercato and venture back up to the cold waters of Alaska - Bristol Bay to be exact - to procure more fresh wild salmon. There really is nothing quite like freshly caught wild salmon, so we bid adieu for a month or two to let these guys return to their ship "Vortex" and do what they do best, fish. The salmon they catch is filleted, vacuum sealed, and flash frozen within hours of harvest ensuring you get the very best omega-3 packed fish you know and love. Offering only what's been harvested from the current season, Bristol Bay does salmon the right way.
From the chipotle smoked salmon dip, to the smoked and fresh fillets, come and get it while you still can on Saturday, then start the countdown to their return.
