Two families have come together to keep the tradition of the former Marblehead Lobster Company alive to serve Marblehead and surrounding north shore communities. With combined experience in commercial fishing, lobstering, and food service, the O’Keefe and Brewin families are looking forward to becoming a vital part of the Marblehead community.
We chose the name Little Harbor Lobster Company to honor the history that is so special to the market's location. The market overlooks Little Harbor, which was the site of the first fishing station in Marblehead and where the first settlers arrived. We look forward to bringing a fresh, community-based market concept to serve both longstanding Marblehead Lobster Company customers and new patrons.
At the core of Little Harbor Lobster is the desire to support the fishermen that contribute so much to our community and give residents of Marblehead and surrounding communities access to the freshest seafood. Many of the lobster sold at LHLC are caught daily by Tim O’Keefe, one of the LHLC owners, on his boat the Lori’o. With decades of experience fishing in the region, Tim has developed strong relationships with other fisherman that we will utilize to source other seafood offered at LHLC.
