Vendor Spotlight:  Two If By Seafood

This week our spotlight lands on Shannon Ford and the Ford family of Two If By Seafood.

What is your product?  Wild Alaskan salmon - fresh frozen and smoked.  Primarily Sockeye but also Coho and King.  We also have candied prime strips which are sweet smoked salmon bellies, and caviar.

How did you get started?  Years in production?  The Ford family has been fishing Bristol Bay, Alaska since 1930 - Two If By Seafood is now in our 4th generation of the salmon fishing business!  Father Ernie began commercial fishing at a young age, and daughter Shannon has been going up to Alaska since she was a youngster for summer work.  We had a goal of  bringing fresh frozen salmon directly to the local community and we have been doing that now for seven seasons of farmers markets.

What would you like us to know about your product? Do you use a special or family/traditional recipe? We make sure to bring it to you properly processed.  That is prepared, vacuum-packed, and frozen within hours of being caught!

What is your bestseller and/or favorite product you bring to market?  Right now we are showing off our gorgeous Sockeye salmon steaks - always a favorite for grilling or pan frying.  Our Salmon Candy Smoked Prime Strips are also delicious and very popular! 

What do you like most about farmers markets - Renton's in particular? The Renton Farmers Market has such a fun community atmosphere and we so enjoy seeing our friends each week - both fellow vendors and customers.  With music, food tasting and special events the Renton Farmers Market feels like a weekly village festival!

Anywhere else we can buy your product?  We are also at the Wallingford Farmers Market on Wednesdays and the Bellevue Farmers Market on Thursdays.  Purchases and special orders can be made all year round, find us on our Facebook Page.

Anything else you would like to share with us?  Bristol Bay, Alaska is the most pristine salmon environment left on this earth and these fish develop in virtually untouched wilderness to mature in the Bering Sea and North Pacific Ocean.  This fishery has been protected for 100 years, monitored by the University of Washington and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in order to maintain maximum sustainable yields of the very highest quality fish!
