Create an itinerary including Fish Market
Shop and eat your way through Fish Market, the site that has served as the meeting place for fisherman, traders, and locals alike since the 12th century. Located in the very center of the city on the wharf, it is one of the most popular outdoor markets in Norway and is often bustling with action. Browse the stalls of fresh fish and other seafood and view the live catches from that morning. Purchase crab, shrimp, caviar, smoked salmon, cod, or even whale from one of the friendly fishmongers. Sample some of the local cuisine at one of the many vendors along the market. You can also buy souvenirs, local art, flowers, fruits, and vegetables here. Arrive early to avoid the crowds. Make Fish Market a centerpiece of your Bergen vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bergen travel planner.

  • Disappointment Quality of fish is of rather poor quality. And all is very pricy. We went to Burger King for a good meal instead.

  • The Market has a lot of local residents selling sea food, fresh fruits and homemade goods. We saw a few performers in the market which made the shopping a bit entertaining. One thing that I found was unique was whale meat which tasted different but delicious.
  • Must first see the Seattle Washington USA fish market to compare then you'll understand the big difference. Main problem is when they cook the fish it's all on the same grill so the whale meet is next to the salmon next to the shrimp so not appetizing. But fish seemed fresh
