Slideshow SLIDESHOW: Behind The Scenes at the New Fulton Fish Market with Alex Palumbo

[Photographs: Donny Tsang]

Alex Palumbo, the owner of Osteria il Paiolo in Williamsburg, is serious about his ingredients, and he regularly hits up the markets to buy meat, produce, and seafood. On a recent crisp night, we were lucky enough to accompany Alex up to the New Fulton Fish Market in Hunts Point. He told us that when he first started making trips up to Hunts Point and was still new to the whole Fulton Fish Market experience, it took him nearly two to three hours to buy seafood. Now, after going for so many years, he only spends a brief hour jumping from supplier to supplier while pulling his dolly.
