 "English professor Eric Hendrix was sick of never finding
any—zero, zip, zilch—fresh fish in tiny Sylva, North Carolina.
So he opened Eric’s Fresh Fish Market in a defunct downtown
art studio on Saturdays only. He used his $600 economic stimulus
tax refund to buy his first shipment of seafood from Inland
Seafood in Atlanta. Soon he was adding hours. In the summer
of 2008, when his contract wasn’t renewed at Western Carolina
University, the fish market was already open three days a week.
Now his shop stays open four days a week and offers grass-fed
beef and local, organic produce."
