Fish Monger’s Location

Two years after opening a farmers market stall on June 8, 2010, we opened the doors to the brick and mortar store on July 2, 2012. The exterior of our seafood and fish market has a cozy and welcoming feel, reminiscent of how our family aspires to serve our customers. What makes our store unique is that it’s full of natural light from various skylights, all original, and showcases hardwood floors from 1948. We also have smokehouses where we smoke our fish. Our smokehouses are 100% woodfired. They are basically cinder block buildings that we build a campfire in every time we smoke fish!

Our fresh fish typically arrives Tuesdays and Fridays, but we highly recommend calling ahead to confirm. We also suggest that you arrive early, especially on Saturdays, due to the likelihood of selling out of your favorite catch.

Directions to Our Fish Market

The Fish Monger’s Wife is located in Norton Shores, Michigan. From US31 take Exit 112 to West Sherman. We are on West Sherman about ½ mile from Lake Michigan.

Our shop is close to popular eateries, such as the Cherokee Restaurant, which is a breakfast hotspot, and the Frosty Oasis, summer’s coolest creamery.
We also sell fish to nearby restaurants, The Hearthstone and Lake House, which are both within 15 minutes of our fish market.
