Fresh From The Sea Amidst Brownstones

Brooklyn may not lack great food but it lacks great fish. That’s what a couple in Brownstone, Brooklyn believes and have responded to this fishy demand with a fishy supply.  Mermaid’s Garden Sustainable Seafood offers its members fresh-from-the-sea deliveries from Montauk and Cape Cod in an effort to “reconnect coastal communities to their food system.”

In a setup that closely resembles the borough’s community-supported agriculture groups, participants can buy “shares” of fish and shellfish available for pickup at three locations: Palo Santo restaurant in Park Slope, the Red Hook community-supported agriculture group, and Green Hill Food Co-op in Clinton Hill.

Included among the catches of the day will be bass, tuna, skate, or whatever participating fishermen haul in, at prices starting from $99 for six 1.25 lb. pickups.

You know? Things are really going retro if communal around here.
