WE ARE OPEN — WITH MODIFIED HOURS AND PROTOCOL

The COVID-19 era is challenging and stressful for everyone, but we want you to know: Flying Fish takes its obligations to the health and safety of our customers and our staff extremely seriously.

Our seafood market will remain OPEN to provide customers with fresh fish to feed your families - no more than 10 customers at a time, and please keep your distance from one another, including staff. You can also place an order from the market online at our Mercado store:

And our restaurant will prepare orders for pickup only. (Sorry, no delivery from the restaurant.)


Thanks for understanding, and as always, for your support. We'll get through this together (but safely apart!).

– Lyf and the Flying Fish Team

Happy Friday, everyone. We hope you're staying safe and healthy at home. When you're ready to venture out and pick up some fresh fish or a hot burger? Put your faith in us, we've got you covered, three ways: pickup, delivery, and pickup:


  • CALL AHEAD TO ORDER FRESH & FROZEN FOOD FOR PICKUP (IN-STORE OR CURBSIDE): 971-806-6747
  • ORDER FRESH & FROZEN FOOD ONLINE FOR DELIVERY: MERCATO
  • ORDER DISHES FROM OUR RESTAURANT MENU FOR PICKUP (IN-STORE OR CURBSIDE): SQUARE


GOOD FOOD FOR YOU TO COOK AT HOME


Stay at home means stay at home (with only essential trips, obviously), and stay at home means a whole lotta home cooking. Might we suggest some Whole Trout BBQ? Such wild timing for Lyf and his family to be featured in Oregon Home, but here it is, a story by Danielle Centoni. Check it out HERE. In it, Lyf discusses aquaponics, fish farming done right, and specifically, the recipe pictured above: whole cooked trout on the BBQ with fresh veggies. We've got all of those things in deep supply right now, so make a plan now for pickup or delivery.


To wit, we've just partnered with our buds at Stoneboat Farm over in Hillsboro for weekly CSA boxes. Just $35/week for a big ol' box of fresh veggies, delivered every Wednesday. Pre-order only, contact Lyf (oregonfreshfish@gmail.com) to get on board. We're also getting our meat and fish boxes order - same idea, a weekly box of meat or fish for your freezer. Details shortly.


Be sure to take a gander at the Other Stuff list below - we're making use of our otherwise unused counters by stocking up on veggies, canned goods, sauces and more.

@micbanh, we're bummed that Portland Dining Month got cut short too, but we're grateful you could swing by while it was here.

ABOUT US


Craig Gildersleeve opened Flying Fish Company in Sandpoint, Idaho in 1979 - the year before his son Lyf was born. Lyf, president of Flying Fish Company, has spent his entire life around fish, including an aquaculture education at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University.


Flying Fish has three locations: Sandpoint, Idaho; Durango, Colorado; and Portland, Oregon. The Portland location opened in 2009 as a food cart at the D Street pod on Division Street. In 2011, we opened the fish shack on Hawthorne Boulevard. In 2016, we moved into a stand at Providore Fine Foods on Sandy Boulevard. In February 2020, we opened our standalone location on East Burnside.

Thank you for supporting our family-owned business.
