There’s a new seafood market in Turks and Caicos, with a famous name.

It’s called the Bubba Gump Seafood Market, and the market is the product of five decades of Turks and Caicos fishing experience.

The brainchild of Dameko Dean, the first location of Bubba Gump is located in Providenciales’ Grace Bay, offering everything from conch to lobster to fresh fish and more.

“Our boats go out every day and bring back fresh stock,” the market told Caribbean Journal.

Grace Bay’s Bubba Gump is located in the Alliance Business Center across the street from Providenciales’ Alexandra Resort.

The market, which gets its name from the popular film Forrest Gump, is not related to the United States-based Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
