Jaines & Son, Fishmonger

Stoke Newington, North London

BY NICK MACMAHON | 22 MAY 2019

Located in Stoke Newington, on the idyllic Church Street. Jaines is the perfect local fishmonger. The owner and sole operator, Lewis, selects his fish at the start of each day, selecting only an amount he is confident he can sell by the end of the day. This system means that he only has fresh fish to sell and nothing goes to waste. Good for the business, good for the customer and good for sustainability. This is the same way a bakery operates, so why would we have different standards for our fish as we have for our bread. Jaines is open Tuesday to Saturday. As the fishermen do not fish on the weekend, Lewis elects to close on Sunday and Monday rather than sell anything other than the freshest fish.

 

All the fish and shellfish come from fisheries that follow ethical and sustainable fishing practices and are approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). As well as fresh seafood, Jaines also stocks a variety of preserved seafood products and dry goods.
