Restaurant of the Week: The MAR·KET | fishmonger & eatery

Nestled in the heart and soul of Edmonds, and just steps from the beautiful Puget Sound, you’ll find The MAR·KET | fishmonger & eatery. Whether you’re buying clams and crabs by the pound or dining in, this menu is a seafood lover’s dream. Fresh, sustainable and local, each dish has been carefully thought through and constructed by the talented head chef Hans Korompis.

The MAR·KET menu truly has something for everyone that will leave your tummy full and satisfied. If you’re looking to get out into the fresh ocean air, the heated patio is available for street-side dining. Privacy dividers offer safety for social distancing. If you’re not keen on dining out during this time, you can still support this local business by easily ordering online for curbside pickup or delivery.

Whatever you do, don’t leave without trying the famous lobster roll, packed with Maine lobster and served on a toasted Macrina roll with house aioli, celery, gherkins, arugula, brown butter and a side of fries. The lobster melts in your mouth and is great for sharing if you’re looking to explore other delicious menu options.

A great sharable and “secret” menu item is the clam chowder poutine which delivers flavor and rich creaminess in every bite. Looking for something fried but not seeking the classic fish and chips? The crab in a bag will not disappoint and is a unique creation incorporating fried soft shell crab, chilies, garlic and spices served in a brown paper bag and bursting with flavor.

If you’re in the mood for something on the lighter side, try the signature fish tacos (two per order). These are truly some of the best grilled fish tacos around. Served on soft corn tortillas, rockfish steals the show (available grilled or beer-battered) accompanied by napa cabbage, house aioli, mango salsa, queso fresco and nam jim pak chee (a Thai cilantro sauce). Come summertime, the sushi burrito is a warm-weather favorite.

Be sure to see how The MAR·KET is also helping its local community with school lunches offered weekly at $5 per meal per student. This makes for a great option for those who are homeschooling and have no time for cooking or limited access to food. With an option for everyone, this is the perfect spot for walk-up service offering excellent seafood for takeaway or outdoor dining year-round.
