Jessie Taylor Seafood has proudly served fresh fish and seafood at the Municipal Fish Market at The Wharf since 1939. The business, which is owned and operated by the Evans family from Smith Island, MD, is named after the family's first fishing boat, The Jessie Taylor, that delivered fresh catch to The Municipal Fish Market.

Today, Jessie Taylor Seafood is beloved by locals and visitors alike due to their excellent service, their frequent live crab specials, and for offering the region's largest selection of seafood.

Jessie Taylor Seafood has a selection of prepared foods onsite—including shrimp, crab, and chowder—and they can also cook and season your fresh crabs after you purchase them.

Visit the Fish Market

Enjoy the freshest fish from one of the country’s oldest fish markets. Oysters on the half shell. Blue crabs by the bushel. Whole fishes caught that morning. And a low-key atmosphere that makes everything taste even better. Stop by for the food or the fishmongers—the Municipal Fish Market never disappoints.
