Located on the corner of SE 44th Avenue and Woodstock, Portland Fish Market opened in 2014, and to mark its two-year anniversary, the company launched a fish and chips window, serving fried cod and halibut with a side of house-made tartar sauce. Portland Fish Market bills itself as “Portland’s only all-wild fish market,” and according to the press release, it has plans to fry up more species of fish as the fishing seasons change.
“Woodstock is the perfect neighborhood for us,” says co-owner Agnes Berkowitz in the release. “Adding a fish and chips window was a natural progression.” For those who do not want to grab-and-go, the market has a couple of picnic tables set up on the sidewalk on its busy stretch of Woodstock. Soft drinks are also available.
Along with Berkowitz, Portland Fish Market is owned by Ben Berkowitz and Mike and Brandi Shirley, and the partners have been a part of the Oregon fishing community for years. As availability allows, the market sells wild fish, like albacore tuna, black cod, Chinook salmon, and halibut, and shellfish, like calamari, Dungeness crab, and oysters, and it also smokes its own seafood.
The new fish and chips window operates Wednesday to Saturday, from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Sunday, from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Portland Fish Market itself is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
