"Are you from the Greenpeace?" -No. "Well, because we eat animals - do you want to taste a whale?" So we tasted it. It's nice experience to try a different kinds of fish and seafood.

You will pass by here going from the south side of Bergen to the north side and Bryggen. Fish sellers and a few places to eat. Didn't think too much of it.

I thought this would be larger than it was. You can buy raw fish here and there are many outdoor restaurants where you can buy a variety of fish dishes including whale burgers. Across the street from this is another square with vendors selling locally made wool goods.

Long gone is the beautiful local fish market that we used to enjoy on the end of the quay… (it’s been rehoused at the side of the harbour in a stunning new building)… and the original site is now a dirty, crowded, overpriced, obnoxious dive… with desperate looking traders determined to charge unsuspecting tourists… off cruise ships… the absolute earth...

It was a pleasure visiting the fish market in Bergen, so much choice, fresh food, and we were able to enjoy a shrimp sandwich on the premises, nothing better than first choice fresh schrimp

Between the center of Bergen and Bryggen in the end of the old port you’ll find this market. Here you can find everything that the sea can offer us. You can buy a lot of different fresh fishes, shellfishes and crayfishes for to prepare at home or you can have it prepared at the place and sit down and have... More

Walk through it on way to funicular or Bryggen wharf. Try the lobster soup and whaleburger from the local vendors.

The market is no more than a collection of casual traders primarily selling fish. The fact that many stalls have an adjoining cooking/dinning facility is novel.It is overrated as an attraction. Most towns of a reasonable size have an equivalent fresh produce market.

Unfortunately, this once amazing place has become one of the biggest tourist traps in Bergen. Being from Bergen, we traditionally have always been proud of this place, However, this has grown out of proportions, with more and more vendors and stalls. These days one can buy all kinds of products. From the traditional seafood, fruit, and vegetables, to all kind... More

The Fish Market is arguably one of the worst places one can visit in Bergen. It consists basically in a bunch of carts and a modern building full of overpriced fish and other type of seafood. Not that the quality of the food is bad, but you can certainly get the same quality (or even better) for way more reasonable... More
