    U.S. REP. DANNY K. DAVIS CONVENES PLANNING COMMITTEE FOR CONFERENCE ON STATE OF AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN
    We are in our third week of Black History Month. Last Sunday's bible readings at my church, St. Martin de Porres at Washington and Laramie in Chicago, were very appropriate for Black History Month. Jesus speaks against the teaching of an "eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth".

Fresh Fish Market Near West Side?

City Fresh at the French Market just changed. They will no longer have a fish counter. They will special order but at a higher price point if you call a few days in advance. So I guess we are looking for a local fresh fish market in the West Loop or near by. Going to Devon and Kedzie is too far on Saturday. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you all.

Fish Market

Since the West Loop has lost Isaacsons & Stein Fish Co. at the end of last year. Does any one have any other recommendations for a fresh fish retail place in the city?

  • City Fresh at the French Market just changed. They will no longer have a fish counter. They will special order but at a higher price point if you call a few days in advance.

  • Thanks GiniatWork for the update! Moshe from True West Loop (facebook group) has proposed a west loop farmers market in one of the old buildings they are rehabbing. Wouldn't that be great ..a year round market with fresh fish!!! \
