The Fulton Fish Market was established in 1822 in New York City and located for the majority of its existence in lower Manhattan. Starting in 2005, the market moved up to Hunts Point in the Bronx.
A recent trip to the New Fulton Fish Market yielded a great purchase of an Arctic Char. Not only was the fish incredibly fresh but it cost $5.90/lb. The fish was just over 3 pounds and came to a total of $18. This same fish in a market in the city would cost around $15/lb and in a restaurant could easily be over $20 per plate. (Editors note: I did take a cab to and from the market at 3am and am not factoring in the cost of both those trips.)

The store also carries a variety of meat pies, Scotch eggs as well as pork and sausages.
