Fish Club December 20, 2014

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

Welcome to Fish Club. The first rule of Fish Club is: you do not talk about Fish Club. The second rule of Fish Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fish Club!

They followed the rules. I did not hear a thing about Fish Club, and it was happening for a month or two—or at least that’s the story I was told.

A few days ago, Laura called me and opened with “I’ve got great news.” Given the state of the world, hearing those words is intriguing, and I was in desperate need of something good.

She proceeded to tell me that there had been a supersecret group of people who were getting in on a deal: Someone knew someone who weekly went to the coast, bought fish, and delivered it to restaurants between here and there. This small supersecret group of people had gotten a cut of that action, ordering fresh fish every week.

Of course, Laura was among them. Laura is Always On the Inside.

But those fishrunners were looking for a farmer’s market. A bigger, popular one apparently turned them down because the fish (obviously) isn’t local. But not our market. Our market wants fish.

And as soon as it was official, Laura called me with the great news.

So here’s how it will work: I sign up. On Thursday, I’m texted two choices for order. I have a certain amount of time to reply. The order is delivered at market Friday night.

Market is eight doors down from me.

I signed up last night.

First delivery, Pisces willing, will happen sometime in January.

Fishy business indeed. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) I wish I was Always On the Inside.
