Bringing fresh sustainable seafood to Northeast DC


The District Fishwife at Union Market is Washington, D.C.’s premier destination for superlative and diverse fresh seafood, including many hard-to-find specialty seafood items, and a variety of quick-serve seafood dishes. The focus is on seasonally-available regional and sustainable seafood, including standards such as sushi-grade tuna, genuine dry sea scallops, farmed and wild salmon, halibut, cod, rockfish, shrimp, clams, and mussels. Lesser-known varieties such as mackerel, barramundi, sheepshead, branzino, sea urchin (uni), and the invasive Blue Catfish and Snakehead are also on regular offer. Packaged items such as seaweed salad, pickled ginger, tobiko, and wasabi are regularly available, as well as shrimp cocktail, salt cod, pickled herring, sardines, and a variety of house-made sauces and accompaniments. Quick-serve dishes cover local and international favorites including fish and chips, poké bowl, invasive fish sandwich, salmon burger, shrimp roll, grilled seafood salads, and changing seasonal specials. Three beers are available on tap, along with red and white wine, a variety of sodas, still water, sparkling water, and juices for kids.

 

Our mission is to provide exceptionally fresh seafood and guide our customers in making sustainable choices, while providing suggestions, recipes, and encouragement for preparation at home.
