In a nondescript part of New Bedford, sits a little fish market called, Captain Frank's Seafood Market. Captain Frank's has been a staple in New Bedford since 1965 and there is a good reason why. They have kept it simple, low key and have always served the best and freshest seafood to its customers. Whenever I have a clam boil, I always go to Captain Frank's for their fresh Maine clams. They are the cleanest and freshest around. It is wise to pre-order. Pre-ordering doesn't guarantee the price since a catch can vary from day-to-day, but it does guarantee that you will have clams! That is how popular Captain Frank's clams are! I have gotten lobster, swordfish, shrimp, scallops, cod, sole, etc. and I have never been disappointed. What it lacks in being fancy, it makes up on quality and I am more than OK with that! Competitors may come and go but Captain Frank's has proven that it is here to stay! They are located at 360 Hathaway Road, New Bedford, MA. They can bew reached by phone at (508) 992-3000. their hours of operation are: Tuesday- Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday 9-5 and are closed Sunday and Monday (Although, for some holiday weekends they do open on on a Sunday for a few hours. Best to call ahead to be sure).
