why did we open

the market?

"I moved to United States after marrying my wife and the first thing I noticed that I couldn't find a decent place to buy fresh fish" said Bilge:


"Here in DC Metro Area, we are on the coast and yet we only have supermarkets when it comes to fresh fish. People are so spoiled in Europe, finding a fresh fish market on almost every corner you turn. You go to your neighborhood market street, walk into a fish market where the fishmonger knows you by name, cuts and cleans your fish the way you want and that's it. That is what we want to give to our customers here. A comfort where they can trust their fish market and get their seafood ready for their dinner".


"People are almost afraid to eat seafood around here" said Co-Owner Tuba Sapanli. " We want to be the knowledge source for our customers on how to prepare, cook and enjoy seafood".


"In our busy days, one thing does not change: "We all have to eat". But what we eat and how we get it is another story. The new trend is to eat healthier without spending a fortune and ton of time preparing it."


Tuba recently added an "oven ready" collection to the market's menu, where you can pre order and pick up your dinner from the store, ready to cook and enjoy. Great for busy moms and anyone who has no time to prepare a healthy meal.
