Slow Food in the Tetons will host a salmon stock up event to help the community buy wild sustainable net-to-table sockeye salmon direct from an Alaskan fisherman. Slow Food works with a small family business called Pride of Bristol Bay to deliver bulk salmon to Jackson.

Locals should attend the People’s Market on September 13th between 4-7pm to place an order for frozen salmon that is delivered straight from Alaska. While at the market, enjoy a grilled salmon dinner to support Slow Food in the Tetons prepared by Slow Food staff and volunteers.

“The fleet of Bristol Bay fishermen harvest wild sockeye salmon and are fiercely dedicated to the very highest quality standards at every point of harvest and delivery.” Matt Luck of Pride of Bristol Bay.

The salmon pick-up will take place on September 23rd between 10am- 4pm at the Jackson Whole Grocer. The day before the salmon pickup, on September 22nd, the Jackson Hole Grocer will host a $5 salmon lunch also to benefit Slow Food in the Tetons.

“Our aim to help bring good quality food to our community while supporting sustainable food production. We feel fortunate to be working with Matt Luck and Pride of Bristol Bay again this year to bring in wild sustainable sockeye salmon at a good price” says Scott Steen Executive Director for Slow Food in the Tetons.

Pride of Bristol Bay is deeply involved in efforts to protect a Bristol Bay, a world-class pristine fishery and ecosystem from extractive industries that pose a series and eminent threat to its health and wellbeing and to the way of life of the people who depend on this resource.
