Small Business Profile: Flying Fish Co.

Thursday, August 20, 2015

 

Portland has been mocked for their careful curation of local produce and goods in the past but when it comes to supporting local economies this desire is fundamental in building a strong financial backbone for the city. The food revolution exists in Portland due to businesses like Flying Fish and their concentrated efforts to bring locally sourced, sustainable products direct from the fishermen & farms. Specializing in seafood, Flying fish is a produce reseller who believes in relationships and community.

In 2011, husband and wife team Lyf and Natalie Gildersleeve brought the Flying Fish Co. legacy to Portland. Supported by the farm to table philosophy, they bring the freshest, most nutrient rich foods direct to the consumer. Flying Fish Co. found themselves well received by the community that surrounds their  “Fish Shack” on SE Hawthorne Blvd and their companion “Fish Truck” location on SW Multnomah Blvd. Fostering relationships and sticking to their ethical goals, Flying Fish Co. supports the local farmers who take the extra steps to produce the best meats possible free of chemical, antibiotics and other hazardous practices that are now standard in the industrial farming model. 

Today Lyf and Natalie are proud to announce the success of their crowd funding campaign, which will fund their expansion to an additional location on NE Sandy and 24th in Providore fine foods market. In addition to the retail location we can look forward to enjoying their prepared recipes at the brand new oyster bar, which will serve oysters in the half shell, hot smoked salmon and carefully prepared soups. Set for completion in the fall of 2015, we can expect a brand new location to celebrate food and community in NE Portland.
