Right in the heart of Rockford village overlooking wick ford harbor. During the art festival you can buy clamcakes and chowder here and sit outside at one of the scenic benches. Stuffed quahogs are offered mild or spicy and lobsters are around $10.99 a lb. plenty of fresh seafood choices including chowder in their fridge/freezer case

This is a small seafood store on a pier in the outskirts of Wickford Village. We've come here a few times and find their products to be excellent. We especially recommend the clam chowder served hot (at an outdoor area) on Saturdays during the summer. The people here are always friendly and helpful. Just beware of the small parking lot which can get pretty challenging... much better to park in the big lot right next door and make the 45 second walk over. Or even better come by boat (small dock off Wickford Cove just alongside the building). We'll be back!

First, the owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating. It has that family feeling. Secondly, the seafood in the market is really fresh as many items come off day boats. The fresh flounder is outstanding. They also sell fresh local steamers and clams. In the summer, there is a food stand outside which sells chowder and clam cakes. You can eat at one of the small tables overlooking a dock. Great views. The chowder is made there and is excellent. Comes in a variety of styles.

Tip: Take a walk around the area. There is a public pier next door and is located in a historical district in Wickford. The homes are precious! Re-live colonial days.

Rustic, dedicated seafood shop right at the end of Main street in Wickford. Always fresh selection of fish and shellfish. Liked their selection of various local water oysters (today had Wellfleet, Bluepoint, and Quonset). Whole squid, lobster, American shrimp (when they have fresh Maine shrimp, buy buy buy!) and, of course, clams: steamers, cherrystones, and littlenecks. Fillets of salmon, Point Judith flounder, cod, and halibut. Selection varies seasonally -- today I was looking for shad roe, but none in yet. Also have prepared foods that can be reheated like stuffies, cooked shrimp, lobster, crab cakes, etc. Sometimes wish they carried whole fish in the cases, but on the whole, have always been happy with their quality.
