Ocean State Fresh was established in 2010 with the specific goals of connecting Rhode Island's fishermen with local consumers, ensuring that fresh and local seafood stays fresh and local, supporting the local fishing industry and promoting sustainable seafood. Ocean State Fresh is accomplishing these goals through the conception of a Community Supported Fishery program in Rhode Island and through the creation of the first statewide brand-name open to all of those in Rhode Island's fishing industry.
Here is what's going on this week!
This Week's CSF Delivery!
This week's delivery will feature Hake. It will be the second time we feature Hake in the CSF. According to many reviews, the fillets are delicate, tender, and sweet tasting. We last delivered Hake back in February and it was a hit. Many people actually asked if we could do it two weeks in a row! Like most of the fish we deliver, it is extremely easy to prepare. See below for scallop recipes.
1 Pound of Hake
If you are interested in signing up for a share, there is not a deadline. You can purchase one by clicking here. If your share is about to expire or has already expired, please consider renewing your subscription. Our CSF will be running year-round! Also, please keep in mind that pick up time is shortened . It will now be from 4-6 p.m. on Fridays at Pier 9 in Newport. Should something unexpected come up, feel free to have someone pick your share up for you. If your share is not picked up by 6 p.m. on Friday, the Rhode Island Department of Health requires us to discard the share. Even though that is extremely wasteful, we still have to comply.
This Week's Dock-To-Market Offering!
The Dock-to-Market section will be open this week and we have a lot to offer. On top of the shellfish, Calamari is available. To buy a pound or more of fresh Rhode Island Calamari, click the link below. If you want to add something extra, Dock-to-Market is a great way to do so. Just make sure you get your orders in by 5 p.m. on Tuesday. Usually, Dock-to-Market purchases will be available for pick-up on Friday's from 4-6 p.m.

We're Looking To Expand!
After a successful launch in Newport, people are asking us to expand and we want to! We purchased a brand new refrigerated van that allows us to be more mobile. As a result we can access any part of Rhode Island. If you live outside of the Newport area and want to be part of our CSF, please contact us. We will be happy to come to you!
Keep Up With Ocean State Fresh!
Are you on Facebook or Twitter? You can follow us via Facebook and Twitter, where we post photos, articles and updates pertinent to Ocean State Fresh and our CSF program. We'd also love to see what you create with your CSF shares. If you are feeling so inclined, please post pictures, recipes or anything else on our Facebook page! Have a question? Tweet us! We've made it easy for you to follow both live feeds on the News page of our website.
We Swipe For A Cause!
Since we are all about helping the Ocean State, we want to be as local as possible. Instead of working with a nameless, out-of-state credit card processor we have teamed up with Swipe For A Cause. Swipe For A Cause is a local credit card processor that donates 50% of its profits to charity. Specifically, they use their profits to bring residential hospice to Rhode Island. If you didn't already know, Rhode Island is the only state in the United States that does not have residential hospice. If you wish to support Swipe For A Cause, please place your orders via e-mail and pay at pick-up.
