Fresh Pond Seafood Opening in Arlington

A fish market that closed in the Fresh Pond section of Cambridge a few years ago is going to be reopening in Arlington.

According to the mintycustom blog as well as posters on Chowhound, Fresh Pond Seafood is opening on Summer Street near the Mill Street intersection, taking over the space that has been a produce market as well as a car leasing place. Fresh Pond Seafood had been located on the Fresh Pond Parkway in Cambridge for about three decades until closing late in 2006. The fish store was known for items such as fresh lobster, steamers, haddock, tuna, salmon, and more, as well as some produce. A 2008 article from the Boston Business Journal mentions that the old Fresh Pond Seafood in Cambridge was a place frequented by Julia Child.

[June 23, 2011 update: According to their Facebook page, the new Fresh Pond Seafood in Arlington is now open.]

The address for this new fish market and takeout place is: Fresh Pond Seafood, 75 Summer Street (Route 2A), Arlington, MA, 02474.
