If you enjoy fish and don’t have time to fish, check out three of our favorite fish markets.

HICKEY BROTHERS FISHERIES:  8099 Ridges Road, Baileys Harbor

The Hickey Brothers Fisheries, Wisconsin’s only caviar producer, has been processing and curing roe from the Great Lakes since Martin Hickey first emigrated from Norway in the 1880’s. Today, under the control of Jeff and Dennis Hickey (Martin’s grandsons), those ties to Door County remain as strong as ever.  The Company has built a solid reputation in both commercial fishing and the fisheries research sector.
