Win Choy Food Market
218 Canal St.
between Walker/Baxter Sts.
A very large, very busy fish and shellfish market with incredibly low prices. On many days they offer as many as 15 different types of shrimp in all sizes, from prices as low as $1/pound. It's a bit chaotic and messy, but the inventory moves fast, the store's always crowded, and you can't beat the values.
What to know:
Unlike most fish markets, here you bag your own, choosing from the wooden trays holding whole fish. Once you've made your choice, you pay for it and then your fish is cleaned and re-bagged by the workers.
The store is also called Win Seafood Market.
