Ferry Plaza Farmers Market rules for seafood vendors specify that all fish sold must be sustainably harvested by properly licensed boats from a well-managed fishery, or sustainably farmed. Sustainable harvesting methods, as defined by Foodwise, include active techniques such as trolling, jigging, trapping, and use of encircling seine nets or hook-and-line technologies. Species that are overfished, as identified by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, cannot be sold. Farmed salmon and products made from farmed salmon are also prohibited.

To help you navigate local and seasonal choices at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, we’ve developed a new Seafood Availability Chart in partnership with the seafood vendors listed below.
