Don’t People Eat Fish on Saturdays?

For over a week now, I have been excitedly anticipating photographing the Fulton Fish Market during its final days. After 151 years, the Fulton Fish Market will swim upstream and make its new home in the Bronx. (Read about it here.) Toby Joe and i were to wake up tomorrow morning at 3 a.m. and then head over to watch them set up, photographing everything we can.

Upon entering the office this morning, I thought to check, one last time, to make sure it was still actually at Fulton Street as I got wind of it moving in July. And, well, it’s July. After digging through pages and pages to find the actual final date, I did discover that it’s not even open on Saturdays. Needless to say, I am so bummed by this news. But probably not as bummed had we gotten up at 3 a.m. as planned and headed down there to find nothing.


  1. oooooh this is something I really wanted to do too.

    I think most wholesale markets like this are generally open on weekdays only. that is why “they” say not to eat fish in restaurants on sundays. ‘cuz it’s from Friday.


  2. Nico, I had no idea. I will avoid fish on Sundays. Maybe saturday’s too.


  3. What? the Fish Market is moving? I have always wanted to photograph that place too but have never had a chance. Damn.
