Sea Fresh
3550 S Harbor Blvd.
Oxnard, CA 93035
- fresh fish caught off their own boat and sold here daily. also a selection of non-local fish.
- serves breakfast, lunch & dinner. sit outside on their deck (heat lamps included) and enjoy views of the harbor.

Fishermen's Catch
3960 Tradewinds Dr.
Oxnard, CA 93035
- fresh fish caught off their own boat and sold daily. also a selection of non-local fish.
- get the daily specials, made with the day's fresh catch. sit outside and enjoy the channel.

Right off the dock
- several boats haul in their fresh catch and sell it right off their boat during Sunday's Channel Islands Harbor farmers market. you can buy it whole or ask them to fillet the fish. selection changes weekly - it's whatever they catch that morning! just look for the sandwich board pointing down to the dock. last week (9/11) i saw live rock crabs for sale!

The Jolly Oyster
San Buenaventura State Beach
- i haven't had the opportunity to check out this little gem yet, but it looks promising. visit their website to get information on how to find them, what to bring and view their price list. If you buy 5 dozen oysters or 7 pounds of clams, they'll pay for your parking! they also have a really heartwarming story, which I'm a total sucker for anytime. makes me want to eat their oysters even more!


Watkins Cattle Company
9972 Creek Road
Oak View, CA 93022
- check out their website for their schedule at local farmers markets. you can find them at the Downtown Ventura farmers market on Saturdays and at Pacific View mall on Wednesdays.

Novy Ranches
Shasta Valley, N CA
- okay, so they're technically not local (FDA defines "local" as within 400 miles), but they're still within CA. they can be found at farmers markets all over southern CA (including the CI Harbor one i frequent). check out their website for a list of locations & times. the great thing about Novy Ranches is that they let you pre-order your meat selections online, then pick them up at your local farmers market. awesome!

Ventura Meat Co.
Ventura, CA
- NEW! haven't had the chance to visit yet but it sure does look promising! they source their grass fed meats from CA farms, including Watkins Cattle Co.
