Owner - Stewart Fishman
After working for ten years in the computer and technology field as an engineer, Stewart turned his love for food and people into Fishman's Kosher Market in 1995. Stewart purchased an existing neighborhood market and transformed it into a one-stop shop for kosher consumers with dry groceries, perishables and fresh meats. After operating for seven years at that location, in the summer of 2001 Fishman's moved to its current location and expanded its offerings to include a delicatessen, bakery, catering and restaurant. Together with Chef Ron, Stewart and the complete staff at Fishman's Kosher have considerably raised the bar on kosher offerings in the Twin Cities.
