Did you know you can get super fresh, sustainable fish in Red Hook? Realty Collective hosts the Mermaid’s Garden Fish Share every Saturday from 10 am -12 pm.
The Fish Share connects consumers to fishermen and offers higher quality, value and transparency than traditional retail models. Participants commit to a four week cycle, during which they receive weekly shares of fresh fish. For more information on the Share, visit the Mermaid’s Garden website.
Now Ends Meat NYC may be coming coming to Red Hook as well! They just need enough people interested to sign up for the Red Hook pick-up to make this happen. Read more about this meat club below and email them here if you are interested!
WHAT YOU GET
3-4 pounds of responsibly raised, pastured meat from local farms every week (or every other week). We work exclusively with whole animals, so you’ll likely get cuts of meat you’ve never had before! Each pickup will contain a variety of beef, pork, and chicken from the following categories:
Dry-Aged Porterhouse, Flank Steak, Pork Chops, Chicken Breasts
Beef Short Ribs, Pork Belly, Chicken Leg and Thigh
Ground Pork, Ground Beef, Sausages, Kabobs
STOCK + FAT
Pork Stock, Beef Stock, Chicken Stock, Vegetable Stock, Rendered Beef and Pork Fat
Each week we include recipes and cooking tips about the different cuts of meat you’re receiving.

HOW IT WORKS
The Ends Meat Club is similar to a CSA. Membership runs for 12 weeks but can be joined at any time. Members choose either Full or Half Shares. Full Share members pick up meat every week and Half Share members pick up every other week. The cost for a Full Share is $480 ($40 per pickup) and a Half Share is $264 ($44 per pickup). Full payment by cash, check or credit card is due upon registration. Members pick up their shares every week (or every other week for Half Share members) on Wednesdays between 5pm and 7
