GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Another space in the Grand Rapids Downtown Market’s Market Hall is filled.

Market officials announced Tuesday a new fishmonger will be selling fresh fish when the building opens to the public August 26.  After helping lead two fish retailers in Seattle’s famous Pike’s Place Market, Jeff Butzow decided to found Fish Lads of Grand Rapids.   Butzow’s new shop will offer a variety of local freshwater fish as well as seafood from the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, flown in fresh daily.  The business will also maintain a watch list of seafood to avoid because it’s being depleted by overfishing.

Construction workers are putting the finishing touches on the 138,000 square foot Market Hall.  The LEED-certified space features 24 vendors and two full-service restaurants, including a micro-brewery.
