this is an impressive market marred by two things; the sale of whale meat on some stalls and the cost of the shell fish esp. The stall to the far end under the covered area to the right of the harbor seemed less touristy and very willing to identify cheaper specimens to fill out a fish soup!

This Fish Market in Bergen, Norway has been around for apparently over 100 years. We visited it during a stop from our cruise ship. It was a rainy day in Bergen but we still enjoyed it very much. All the merchants were very friendly and most spoke English. Most of them accept Euros also, which is convenient for visitors in... More

The Fish Market consists of a enclosed building with several purveyors of seafood and other foods, and of a larger outdoor area of semi-permanent stalls/tents with local and regional offerings as diverse as seafood, sausages of reindeer, elk, whale and more, fruits and vegetables (oh those wonderful fresh strawberries!), and so much more. All the seafood places serve food and... More

You don't come to Norway if you don't enjoy fish & here you can enjoy all manner of different fish, e.g. wolf fish was a new experience for me. Outside the covered fish market were a selection of fish stalls, where we sat & enjoyed a plate full of salmon, prepared in different ways - incredibly fresh & tasty.

A huge array of fresh seafood. You can buy fresh fish, reindeer or moose sausage and local fruit. You can also have a quick lunch of your choice. Fun and delicious for everyone.

It provided large variety of seafood but the price is not low. We have tried that, the quality was good but I think we can get the food with similar quality at the restaurants nearby with lower price.

If in Bergen a walk through the open air Fish Market is well worthwhile.The variety of fresh seafood on display is amazing and certainly excites the taste buds although' I am not sure about the Whale Meat. A number of stalls will cook the fresh seafood for you and there are tables and chairs available where you can sit by... More

A very busy area full of seafood lovers eating what seems to be anything what comes out of the sea. This type of food is not for me but was interesting to walk around and see the offerings. Didn't realise whale meat was black so educational as well!
