Larsen's Fishmarket was launched in the 1960s by Louis and Mary Larsen. At the time, Louis was an offshore fisherman they opened the market to offer fair prices to both the local fishing community the customers. Just off the beach and right on the marina, fishermen dock their boats behind the market, where customers sit feasting on stuffed clams and pulling apart lobsters fresh from the pot.
