THE THE FISH MONGER’S WIFE 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 at home.

The Monger’s family has been commercial fishing for Great Lakes Whitefish in Muskegon, Michigan since 1927, but they had never operated a retail fish market. I grew up working at my parent’s retail clothing store. We found a compromise when I packed up the old ’77 Ford F150 (nicknamed the Tomato Soup Truck because of its faded color) and headed to the Muskegon Farmers Market. The plan was I’d make some seasonal income by selling Petersen Fisheries Fresh catch during the summer and then be home for the rest of the year. Little did we know where that road would lead us.

We started out only selling fresh fish fillets. 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.

Our Mom and Pop operation got “real” in 2012 when we purchased a brick and mortar building at 2127 W. Sherman Blvd. in 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! During this time my waist began to expand again and we found out a second daughter would fill out our family that November.

Every day I wake up with two thoughts: Are the kids ok? And how can we do what we are doing better? Whether it is providing local restaurants with fresh fish, or helping a Fish Folk prepare the fish dish of their dreams, we strive to provide our Fish Folk with the best fish possible.
