On a recent late morning visit to Larsen's Fish Market, two StarChefs.com employees were heard to have eaten six super briny and sizable Katama Bay oysters, two cups of clam chowder, followed by two whole lobsters plus a lobster roll that they split just for safe keeping—or so we heard. The Martha’s Vineyard seafood market and take-out window in Chilmark has been in the Larsen family and in the hearts of islanders for decades and was taken over in 1978 by Betsy and her sister Christine when Betsy was 19, 18 years after her parents started the landmark business. 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.
