Best fish market: I.C. Sharks

Best fish market

Our area is blessed with a variety of markets, but the very best place to procure fresh fish is I.C. Sharks. This unassuming spot is located along Gandy Boulevard across from Channel 10 as you head from St Pete to Tampa. Walking in, you immediately recognize the freshness, quality and variety that compels customers to drive from both sides of the Bay to purchase their goods. Especially tasty are the precooked shrimp, and the crab salad is uber-fresh with not too much mayo. The proprietors source their fish from local fishermen and you can rent boats from the marina, right behind the market. Plus, there’s a surprisingly spacious tiki bar and restaurant out back with a great waterfront view. 13040 Gandy Blvd., St. Petersburg, 727-498-8568, icsharks.com.
