Sustainable seafood food market and catering
About Mermaid’s Garden
The team at Mermaid’s Garden lives and breathes fish. They love them in the water and on plates. They also understand that trying to make responsible decisions about the fish we eat can be confusing. Which is why Mermaid’s Garden helps you to find seafood choices that are right for you and smart for the planet.
Mermaid’s Garden offers impeccably fresh, fully traceable sustainable seafood. Products are sourced from small boat fishermen across the United States and around the world. They are able to tell you who, where, and how your fish was caught, because they think it is important to know the path your fish takes from the ocean to your plate.
Like their Fish Share, the market at Mermaid’s Garden highlights fish and shellfish in their seasons, when they are at their best. For example, you can expect Peconic Bay scallops in the fall, Florida stone crabs in the winter, soft-shell crabs in the spring, and wild Alaskan salmon in the summertime.
Customers can join the Fish Share, which connects fish eaters to fisherman. “Participants commit to an agreed upon season, during which they receive regular ‘shares’ of fresh fish. This reconnects coastal communities to their food system, promotes sustainable fishing practices, and strengthens relationships between fishermen and the people they feed.”
Purpose of Purchase
Mermaid’s Garden purchased these tote bags as a way to market and promote their business beyond their storefront and online presence. With the plastic bag ban in place in New York, these bags are also a necessity for consumers when they are out shopping.
