          OUR STORY

          The birth of The Fish Monger's Wife began literally with the birth our first daughter. Like many new parents we faced the hard choice of does mom go back to work or stay home. We found compromise by opening a seasonal retail fish market that specialized in selling fresh, local, wild caught, sustainable Great Lakes Whitefish at local farmers markets. The Monger's family has been commercial fishing for Great Lakes Whitefish in the Muskegon, Michigan area since 1927, but they had never operated a retail fish market. I grew up working at my parent's retail clothing store. Between the two of us, it was a perfect match. We started out only selling at local farmers markets. Then we added smoked fish using a traditional saltwater brine and 100% wood fired smokehouse--- just like Great Grandpa Ben and Great Grandma Oral Petersen used. In 2012 we expanded our "Mom and Pop" operation when we purchased the former Get Planted Greenhouse at 2127 W. Sherman Blvd. Norton Shores, MI. We were drawn to the building because of the 1,500 square foot greenhouse that could be converted into a fish/seafood processing room, but we love it because of the hardwood floors and skylights! It was also during this time we learned our school of fish was going to increase by one in November 2012. As we head into another season with expansion all around us, we'd like to thank all of our loyal customers for your support over the years. It is because of you that we continue to grow. Ciao, Amber Mae Petersen, The Wife
