When working in the kitchen, it’s important to keep your tools in good repair. If your blades are looking a bit dull, don’t fret—bring them to your local Nugget Markets, and our skilled butchers can give your knives the cutting edge.
Quality and sustainability count when it comes to seafood, which is why we feature an extensive selection of sustainable, wild-caught fish and shellfish, as well as receiving fresh seafood deliveries six days a week. We use color-coded labels to designate the environmental impact of each product. Read more about our Guidelines for Sustainable Seafood Buying or ask our seafood department associates! They are always happy to explain more about our sustainability programs and help you make your selections.
