New seafood market offers healthy food options in Louisville neighborhood

A new seafood market has opened in the Smoketown neighborhood just in time for Lent, according to Louisville Business First.Seafood Heaven opened in mid-February at 600 East Broadway, near a BP gas station and Chicken King restaurant. The market is located in a more than 1,700-square-foot building that was previously occupied by China Dragon. Seafood Heaven sells raw seafood and also offers steamed or baked seafood take-out meals. Prices range from $10 to $35. “For now, we don’t have fried food, everything is steamed or baked,” Abughoush explained. “It is a more healthy option. There is a lot of fried food around this area. We’re trying to give them more options. Every meal comes with vegetables like broccoli, corn and potatoes.”Seafood Heaven also carries groceries, but the market has no dine-in seating for customers.Getting fresh food options into Smoketown, which some have called a food desert, has been a goal for the community for some time. “There are about 740 ZIP codes in this state and only five of them are majority Black communities,” Tiffany Michelle Brown of the Louisville Association for Community Economics explained. “All five of them are here in Louisville. They are all here in Downtown and the West End and all five are food deserts, meaning the residents lack access to healthy, affordable food.” Seafood Heaven offers a variety of fish, shrimp, crab legs, clams, scallops, mussels and crawfish. Abughoush spent 20 years working in restaurants in Chicago and some areas of Michigan, where he said seafood markets are common. He moved to Louisville to open Seafood Heaven because his partner, who he declined to name, had previously lived in the city and thought the concept would work well in the River City.
