Wild Alaskan Salmon from Cape Cleare

February 26, 2009

Cape Cleare is the latest fishing vessel to bring fish to Ballard Farmers Market. Based in Port Townsend, Cape Cleare flash-freezes its catch at sea. Cape Cleare offers fresh frozen salmon, albacore tuna and ling cod, as well as canned and smoked fish. And Cape Cleare uniquely pedals what it peddles, traveling to Ballard Farmers Market by two bicycles every Sunday, each one pulling a trailer with coolers containing their fish.
