About Us

Groomer’s Seafood Market is Texas’ premier destination for the freshest fish and seafood. For generations, our family-run company has been a solid part of the seafood industry, forming bonds with fishermen to source the highest quality product for you.

Our History

The Groomer family first received an oyster fishing license in 1892 and began fishing from the Laguna Madre. For over 90 years, we sold our catch directly to local restaurants.

In the 1980s, we moved from local to statewide production as we began supplying seafood all over Texas from San Antonio.

Our reputation grew over the years, and demand increased along with it. With so many people wanting to browse our seafood and try it themselves, we knew that a retail store was the next logical step.

And so, Groomers Seafood Market was born in the heart of San Antonio.

From Dock to Dinnerplate

When you shop at Groomers Seafood Market, you shop directly from the sea. It’s the next best thing to catching your own food.

All of our product goes straight from the fishermen directly to our seafood market.

Unlike supermarket fish, there are no packaging factories, long distances to travel, or 3rd party processors.

The Chef’s Pick

Order a seafood dish from any of Texas’s high-end restaurants, and the fish on your plate is most probably from Groomer’s Seafood.

Of course, that gives us some credentials, but why should you care?

As we’re supplying fish so frequently, it means that our seafood is always fresh.

Just like you wouldn’t eat sushi that’s been on a conveyor belt all day, you don’t want fish that’s been on a shelf for days.

Our seafood has unparalleled freshness and, thanks to our close relationship with fishermen, we negotiate the best price for you.

A Healthy Ocean Is Our Priority

Our family business would be nothing without the ocean.

We believe that we have two roles. One is to provide our customers with the freshest and highest quality seafood. The second is to preserve the environment that gave us this precious resource.

For generations, the ocean has fed us with seafood and kept our family business alive. We want others to enjoy the ocean’s gifts for years to come.

We follow advice from marine conservationists on the most sustainable ways to source seafood and work exclusively with fishermen who share our values.
