The District Fishwife is obsessed with fresh!

We are a full-service fishmonger bringing in fresh product daily, and butchering in-house. We work with local and regional suppliers to ensure our customers can obtain the freshest seafood possible, and endeavor to provide our customers with fresh fish and shellfish that has been sustainably sourced, with an emphasis on products from regional fisheries and sustainable aquaculture farms.

Located at Union Market in Washington, DC, The District Fishwife is now available for online ordering. Our aim is to offer consumers the same selection and quality as we offer in our store with the convenience of ordering from the comfort of their home, in the office, or on-the-go. If there is a product that we sell in our store that you don't see available online, please let us know.

*We encourage customers to address any order concerns directly with the store so we can resolve the issue promptly and directly! Call us at 202-543-2592.*

    I rated it one star because you did not offer zero stars. I have the freezer full of fish that I did not order. I wrote to Mercato yesterday to ask that you arrange to have the fish picked up from my house and delivered to someone who actually wanted it. I also asked that they deliver the lemons which I had indeed ordered and never received. Got an answer saying that the matter was being reviewed, then nothing until this ridiculous survey introduced with the presumption "We believe that you should be delighted etc.". Let me disabuse you of that belief and tell you that these mistakes happen all the time with your delivery services, and not only with the District Fishwife. While the food, when one actually receives it, is generally good, the service is appalling, and this is the reason I will stop using Mercato
