Codfathers Seafood Market welcomes each season and the ever changing fresh seafood that comes along with them. The summer ushers Dungeness crab, salmon, halibut, and We Wai Kai scallops from Quadra Island, just to mention a few highlights that could be hitting your pots or barbeques. Codfathers works with local fisherman to the extent that you can trace many of their products right back to the boat or farm from where they came.  Your fish may have been caught the morning you are purchasing it! The market also offers international seafood for those looking for something more exotic.  

The store carries many top quality products to complete your shopping experience.  Be sure to look out for the unique olive oils that are now available from The Olive Oil Merchant. You can catch Codfathers at the Okanagan Feast of Fields and sample the arctic char coming on Sunday, August 18, 2013.
