Salmon is a super supper choice, and this Friday, it’s more affordable than ever. On January 20, Whole Foods Market is hosting a one-day sale on wild-caught Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)-certified sockeye salmon for $7.99/lb. – a 50 percent savings!

Whole Foods Market maintains the highest standards for seafood quality and sustainability. We prohibit treating our fish with preservatives – so you know what’s on your fork is fish, the whole fish, and nothing but the fish. Your salmon purchase supports healthy ocean ecosystems, too. Our sockeye is certified sustainable by the MSC, meaning fishing methods are low impact and salmon populations are abundant according to the MSC’s high standards for sustainability. And to add to it, the MSC’s chain of custody certification means that the fish are tracked to ensure that they come from the correct, certified fishery.

Sourced from the great runs in Alaska, Whole Foods Market’s sockeye salmon is hand-selected by our own port buyers at the peak of the season, then packed and frozen exclusively for our seafood cases to stock during the winter months. This is a delicious deal – hook, line and sinker.

The University Heights store in Providence (601 N. Main Street) is hosting vendors during the day for recipe tastings including DennyMikes and S&F Marinades, both from Maine! And if you stop by between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. you can enjoy storewide recipe tasting featuring the Wild Sockeye Salmon! You’ll also receive a complimentary sample of Cindy’s Kitchen marinades with your purchase!
