It looks almost like some kind of Victorian mourning shroud: dark curtains are draped over the Granville Island Public Market stall where The Salmon Shop operated for 32 years, up until very recently.

Regular customers and neighbouring vendors arrived one morning to find the fishmonger closed, without warning.

A posted handwritten note doesn't explain what happened, but does offer up heartfelt appreciation for years of loyalty and support.

Watch Shane Foxman's report about this much-loved onetime market fixture.
