The market features seafood distributor Profish, Ltd., Metropolitan Meat, Seafood & Poultry Company, produce and dairy distributor Coastal Sunbelt.
The three companies which normally supply directly to restaurants but, amid the COVID-19 pandemic and restaurants scaling back business, have begun selling directly to individuals.
