Mitch and Rob Mayhew

From the net to your table. Mayhews Market is committed to bringing you the number one selling seafood in the country. . . . SHRIMP! But not just any shrimp. We bring you wild caught, heads on, individually quick frozen (IQF) shrimp from our own Gulf and Atlantic shores. We have also added the same high quality of wild caught fishes, both portions and fillets, from Popsie Fish Company. You can't get any better than Mother Nature!

Home: Welcome

Popsie Fish Co.

We are now carrying wild caught sockeye salmon, cod and halibut from Popsie Fish Company. Popsie began in 1987 when Tony Neal and his family ventured from Des Moines, Iowa (Muskogee Ave off of SW 42nd) to Homer Alaska.  Now in their third generation, they continue their long tradition of providing wild caught (not farmed) sockeye salmon, cod, sablefish and halibut from the Bristol Bay area bringing in around 100,000 pounds of fish a year. That’s a lot of hand picking out of the nets.

Your Product Has Me Hooked

"I purchased some shrimp and tuna steaks from you all at the downtown market last weekend. I have eaten seafood all over the world from Durban to Dubai to Seoul to Koh Lipe and your seafood is the absolute best I have had stateside. Please keep doing what you are doing! I don't think I will be able to purchase from anyone else! Your product has me hooked!! (Literally)

Thanks again for providing the best damn seafood in the Des Moines area."

Our Story

    Since we started Mayhew's Market back in July, 2019, many people have asked us how and why we decided to start this business of getting wild caught shrimp and fish from the Gulf, and now the Atlantic, and bring them up here to Iowa. My son Mitch and I wanted to build a family business. It all came about quite by accident. Mitch was looking up the different types of shrimp online for a dish he wanted to make. He found out far more than he ever imagined and did one of those, "hey Dad, did you know" . . .  and from there, we both began to research more and more and got quite upset over what we found out (see the tab "IMPORTant Facts"). We found that we in Iowa and the rest of the midwest had to settle, for the most part, for imported left overs just because we are land locked. That was unacceptable to which we both said no way! We're not settling for less!!! Iowa and the midwest will have the best quality shrimp and fish and this will be our newfound business (see the tab "Health Benefits" and "IQF"),

     We got our start at the Clarke County Farmers Market in Osceola Iowa and from there added the Norwalk Farmers Market, the Freight House Farmers Market in Davenport, and the Downtown Farmers Market in Des Moines. We also set up on our own in Windsor Heights across from Sams and Walmart and at the Floor Doctors on Merle Hay Road in Des Moines. See the tab “Locations” to see where you can buy some or all of our seafood. And now, we have our first storefront located in Osceola, Iowa. That expansion is due solely to our customers.

     Since we began in July 2019, we have donated a little over 500 pounds of shrimp to the Salvation Army in Davenport, the Salvation Army in Des Moines and Central Iowa Shelter and Services. All three have active kitchens feeding those who are down and out or homeless. We have also donated fifty pounds of fish to the local food bank in Osceola.

     But that's only the first part of our dream. As Mayhew's Market grows, we want to fund Mitch's long time dream of a food truck. Specifically, a seafood truck. Mitch will call it "MAD Creations". MAD is an acronym for "Mitch And Dante". Dante was going to partner with Mitch in a food truck venture some years ago but he passed away before they could make that dream a reality. Mitch is keeping the name in memory of and to honor Dante. Then you'll be able to enjoy scrumptious wild caught seafood prepared by chef Mitch with his culinary talents on full display as well as being able to buy the same seafood to take home and prepare yourself. 

     We strongly believe in providing customers with both quality seafood (see tab "Royal Reds") as well kindness in quality service. Since day one we've had a genuine love and passion for this business and that defines both what we do and how we do it. ​
