Sustainable Seafood, We Don’t Sell or Settle for Anything Less

Introducing Ocean2Table Seafood

New Leaf Community Markets is dedicated to finding high-quality, environmentally responsible, local foods for our customers. Which is why we’ve partnered with Ocean2table, a community supported fishery. They source from over 40 local fishermen with the mission to keep our local seafood local, with as minimal an impact on our oceans as possible.

First Partner with FishWise

A longtime advocate for sustainable seafood, New Leaf collaborated with FishWise and Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program in 2002 to help develop and launch the program’s Green, Yellow and Red color ratings to help customers make informed decisions on the sustainability of the seafood they purchase. New Leaf only sources fish that meet the Green and Yellow ratings.

Easy-to-read, color-coded signage

So you can make informed choices at the case.

Green—The Best Choice: Fish are caught or farmed in an ocean-friendly manner, with minimal impacts on the ecosystem.

Yellow —Good Alternative: Fish from fisheries or farms with good qualities but that still pose some environmental concerns. Populations of these species are thought to be healthy, but there are other problems such as negative impacts on the ecosystem or poor management of the fishery or farm.

We don’t sell red-coded unsustainable choices at New Leaf—never ever. Nope. We wouldn't do that to you or the sea.
