Abstract

An article on Harbor Fish Market, a local fixture since 1860. The market is run by brothers Nick, Ben, and Mike Alfiero, who took over the business from their father, Benjamin. The market's variety makes it unlike any market for miles around. As teenagers, the Alfiero brothers worked in the market, which their father bought with his brother, John, in 1969. Wholesale customers comprise about 75 percent of sales. The business's accounts have become smaller and more service-oriented because of the decrease in fish landings caused by fishing restrictions. The market is noted for consistency, quality and reputation, as well as individualized attention to restaurants and customers with special requirements.
