We intend to be available in Phoenix on Wednesday and Thursday, July 8 & 9 for those who order in advance. Please place your order via email or phone by Wednesday, July 1.

Our website is updated with the current product list and pricing information, including a few smaller package options.

World’s Most Nutrient Dense Food!

We shared an amazing meal yesterday with one of our Los Ranchos Growers Market friends. What you eat, where you eat and who you eat with are key to a truly great meal. We enjoyed a nice mixed microgreens salad with spicy breakfast radishes, salad turnips and green onions, topped with Smoked Sockeye Salmon Belly and dressed with Bariani early harvest extra virgin olive oil, fresh squeezed lemon juice, himalayan sea salt and black pepper. Almost 100% of these ingredients were sourced at our favorite Saturday Growers Market in Los Ranchos…come see us and check out the abundance of local, seasonal produce and food! Maybe I shouldn’t mention that we also enjoyed a glass of homemade lemon mead and a few scoops of Kenny’s famous homemade vanilla ice cream (made with all local milk, cream and eggs).

Seafood is friendly to a multitude of today’s diet plans including: pescaterian, gluten free, mediterranean, paleo, keto and flexitarian. We recommend consuming Alaska Wild Salmon twice per week. It’s healthy and nutritious to everyone from pregnant mothers to the elderly. Our salmon is the single best source of omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) which are essential for our bodies to promote heart health, build immune function, improve blood flow and support healthy brain function and mental health. Alaska Wild Salmon is also naturally high in many essential vitamins (E, A, D and B-12) and vitamins (selenium, potassium, iron and calcium). Additionally, it provides complete, high quality protein. 

Be sure to try both our Wild Alaska Sockeye Salmon and Keta Salmon for a nutritious variety! Sockeye is our favorite for smoking, grilling, baking, ceviche and sashimi. Keta salmon is light and mild and makes an excellent replacement for any whitefish. Use for fish tacos or batter and fry for glorious fish & chips. Also great baked or poached.

Phoenix Schedule This Week

Hello Phoenix FishHuggers! Some of you may already be aware that Ahwatukee Farmers Market (Sunday) has closed indefinitely and Roadrunner Park (Saturday) will be closed this week, April 11, due to the Easter Holiday. As of this moment, we fully intend to be back at Roadrunner Park Farmers Market on the following 2 Saturdays: April 18 and April 25. We’re working to improve our social media skills and we are continuously keeping our website up to date, please check often for details:

This week, we are offering staggered appointments for curbside pick up at our home (near Thomas Rd & 44th St) on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, April 8, 9 & 10. Please order in advance via email, phone or text message to 602-576-1878.

If you need help determining your family’s freezer and pantry needs for the summer, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can also order by budget or storage space availability.

Too Small to Fail

Hey there Phoenix FishHuggers! We intend to be available at both Roadrunner Park and Ahwatukee Farmers Markets through April 26th this season (as usual). As you know, farmers markets are essential and are a great place to get the groceries you need directly from your local producers. As always, stocking up on nutrition is more valuable than stocking calories. We appreciate any orders placed in advance for a “grab and go” style pick up at the market. We prefer payment through zelle to further encourage your efficiency through the market…we still accept cash and cards. Vendors and management are taking many precautions to keep our customers and ourselves safe out at the markets.

For your convenience, we are offering curbside order pick up by appointment at our Phoenix test kitchen (near Thomas Rd & 44th St) on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the month of April. Call, text or email us your order.

In addition to our usual Alaska Wild Salmon and Arizona Local Raw Honey, don’t forget we currently offer: Pasture-Finished Beef (ground), Fresh California Olive Oil, Kenny’s Original Spice Rub, Kenny’s New Mexico Spice Rub, NM Organic raw Pecans, Herbal Infused Sparkling Water, Homemade Mustard and Pickles, Gray Sea Salt, Beeswax, Honeycomb, Pollen, Fresh-Frozen Elderberries and Lavender Tallow Soap!

Make Yourself Essential

Whether you buy food to eat or buy food to sell, you are essential. We need you to eat what we produce to keep you healthy and productive so we can keep feeding you and your family. This month’s demand will help determine next years’ availability. We will decide whether to scale up or down our production before harvest season starts in five weeks. Your input and support will have the greatest influence on what to do next.

Focus on what you can do:

Inventory your food and medical supplies

Calculate your need and a little more

If you need something more to do, create a temporary small scale business to help yourself and others in your circle to buy a supply together. Get involved.

We have weathered 9/11, housing bubbles, globalization, farmed salmon and fake meat. Confidence is high that American ingenuity will come up with good answers to the questions of today.

What I’m going to do today is share some simmering broth with the family and have a shot of cod liver oil.

Spring Updates

Hello Phoenix FishHuggers, it’s almost officially spring and we anticipate the recent desert rains will provide abundant nectar for the bees in the coming season.

We’re available at both Roadrunner Park and Ahwatukee Farmers Markets this weekend (March 14/15).

We’re currently offering 5 varieties of Arizona Local Raw Honey + 8 regional favorites including Oak Leaf Honeydew, Snowberry and Meadowfoam!

Sockeye Salmon and Keta Salmon are both in abundant supply and we have a few portions of Black Cod/Sablefish available as well.

If you’ve been looking forward to trying our New Mexico Pasture-Finished Beef Steak, this is your chance! We have a few Beef NY Strip Steaks and Beef Chuck Roasts available this weekend along with our delicious 5 star Ground Beef.

We have a great supply of fresh harvest fall 2019 Bariani Olive Oil too! This has been our favorite olive oil for over 15 years, a delicious product of California, try both the green olive oil and the black olive oil.

We will not be available at our favorite Phoenix Farmers Markets next weekend (Sat/Sun March 21/22). Please catch us back at the markets the end of March through the end of April 2020 for the spring season. Please contact us if you’re interested in a dinner party, cooking class, honey tasting or freezer delivery. Further inquiry welcome.

Stock Up Sunday – March 8

Hello Phoenix FishHuggers! Please join us this Sunday, March 8 from 1pm-5pm at our Test Kitchen (2031 N 47th St, Phoenix AZ 85008). Snacks and samples will be available. As many of you already know, our harvest season will begin in early to mid-May and we won’t be available at our favorite Phoenix Farmers Markets until fall. Now is the time to consider stocking your freezer and pantry for the summer. We offer salmon, beef and honey by the case, however, most FishHuggers prefer a custom order. Advance orders, questions and comments are welcome at the market, by email, phone or on Facebook. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you soon!
