Maine Avenue Fish Market
Gone Fishing in Southwest DC
Known as "the Wharf," this local landmark since 1805 is the oldest continuously operating fish market in the US. Seafood lovers flock here to the floating barges to purchase and/or feast on fresh fish like shad, perch, bass, and whiting as well as Chesapeake oysters or Maryland blue crab cakes.
