167 Raw is a family-owned business established in 1978 by Bill Sandole as a fresh fish & meat wholesaler. It was known as East Coast Provisions & Seafood Co. The demand for fresh fish from ordinary islanders led him to shift his entire operation to retail after 18 years as a wholesaler. His son, Jesse Sandole, took over the running of the business years later and has steered it to new heights.

Under Jesse’s guidance and vision, the business rebranded, taking up its 167 Hummock Pond Rd address as part of its official business name – 167 Raw. He has also incorporated new lines of business and ventured into the Charleston, South Carolina market, establishing the enterprise as one of Nantucket’s most coveted exports.


167 Raw continues to provide fresh New England seafood and meat in addition to new products and services. These include homemade cuisines, drinks, groceries, herbs, condiments, homemade & packaged snacks, merchandise, and private catering services.

The business employs knowledgeable and friendly full-time and seasonal staff to help with its operations. The team offers quality and timely service to customers and their pets; thus, you are guaranteed satisfactory service.

Fish Market

The fish market runs daily, nine months a year. It has varied season opening dates and time schedules. Check out 167 Raw’s website and socials for updated schedules.

In the store, you’ll find swordfish, tunas, salmon, codfish, crabs, lobsters, shrimps, flounders, scallops, halibuts, and caviars as part of the rich seafood catalog. If you are a meat lover, walk-in for steaks, ribs, lamb racks, pork chops, hamburger patties, sausages, bacon, duck breasts, and more.

So fresh is the fish & meat at the market that the food store hangs a funny poster on the counter that reads:

“Anyone who asks, “Is the Fish Fresh?” must go to the end of the line .”

As such, you are guaranteed to find only freshly sourced gourmet foods at 167 Raw.

The beverages menu features a wide range of bottled and canned drinks, from sodas, wines, beers, and cocktails.
