Columbia River King Salmon – A Simply Superior Selection

The following information was provided by our partners at Foods in Season.

Sustainably fished by Foods in Season’s skilled fisherman on the Columbia River in Washington State and Oregon, Columbia River King Salmon are among the finest salmon caught in the world.

After generations of fishing on the Columbia River, Foods in Season understands the importance of geography, wildlife and sustainable sourcing more than anyone else, which is why they work closely with the Oregon and Washington Departments of Fish and Wildlife to ensure that their waters are not overfished allowing for a healthy stock of salmon for decades to come.

Columbia River

Conveniently, Foods in Season’s warehouse is a short 500 yards from the Columbia River, so the salmon reaches their facility within a mere 6 hours of being fished to guarantee ultimate freshness. However, Foods in Season also requires all of their boats to carry totes of ice to chill the fresh catches, so freshness and quality are preserved from the moment the salmon leave the water through its arrival to our stores 24 hours later and onto its ultimate destination: your dinner plate!

Known as the richest of all King Salmon caught in the U.S. and Alaska, the velvety texture and unique flavor of this wild-caught salmon is simply superior.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
