Bunch places within an hour that are selling stuff coming in from Day boats ..

day scallops that aren’t bleached are a thousand times better than those processed to sell at market 

Within an hour is not the same as local.  Within an hour, you can definitely get amazing day boat scallops.  On the western edge of NJ, you're shit out of luck.  

I'm not sure the ones they typically get in there are bleached either. I've never had anything but spectacular scallops from there that you can eat raw, make ceviche with, grill, etc

While I agree that Mark is an excellent fishmonger and I have bought seafood and other foods from him for nearly 20 years, I am craving the trip down to the ocean to get it from the boats or as close as I can get to them...

Pt.pleasant has a steady flow cape may and Barnegat light also

A fat pig like me thinks nothing of a 3 hour each way drive for a truly great gustatory experience.  True fresh scallops easily qualify :-)

Wegmans often has them, they’re fresh, they say where they came from, most times it’s from NJ, they’re much better than other grocery stores, Whole Foods often has excellent ones too.
