After a very successful first season on the South Fork, Dock to Dish is expanding its community-supported fishery to the North Fork. Participants pay in advance for a weekly delivery of the fresh catch, guaranteed to have landed in Montauk within the past 24 hours. Just like a CSA, members don’t know what they’re getting until they open the box (or the e-mail with the news). This is a great way to supplement your weekly fish buying and try out new species.
The pickup will be at the Browder’s Birds farm in Mattituck, where they also have a chicken and egg CSA, from 2 to 5 p.m. There are only 25 shares this season, while Dock to Dish continues to expand its roster of sustainable-minded fishermen, who are looking for guaranteed buyers. Members can choose between a 14- or 20-week season and buy either an individual share or a family share for $36 and $70 per week, respectively. Sign up here.
