Modern Market, a rapidly growing eatery that serves healthy, scratch made fare, now serves conscientiously farmed Atlantic salmon from Verlasso. While there has been controversy surrounding farm raised salmon, advancements in technology and Verlasso’s farming techniques make it clear this fish can swim with the best.

The salmon are raised in the pollutant-free waters of Chilean Patagonia where there is very little industrial development. Not to mention, the fish have a lot of room to grow, with fewer than three salmon per ton of water.

Hormone and antibiotic-free, the salmon grow to harvest size over a period of approximately two years. Their beautiful orange color comes from natural feed components similar to what salmon eat in the wild. Additionally, Verlasso never uses preventative antibiotics. Their salmon is antibiotic-free at harvest and only treated with antibiotics when they’re sick, never routinely. It is also an excellent source of protein and omega-3s.

“Responsible aquaculture has a very bright future and will impact the world in countless positive ways,” says Chris Cummings, Verlasso Regional Sales Manager. “Modern Market’s commitment to support aquaculture will go a long way. Their customers will benefit from a protein that is not only delicious, but is helping pave the way for the industry to become more accepting of farm raised salmon.”

Breakfast, lunch and dinner rule the day at Modern Market with a broad menu of farm-to-table food that tastes even better than it looks.
