The fish market inMuttrah is one of my favourite places to enjoy on Saturday to buy fish for family. There are many types of fishes available there and most of them are even fresh or of the last night brought from another cities. There are also expert young people that prepares the cutting for the visitors for their fishes

This is probably one of the oldest fish market in muscat. You get to choose from a variety of fresh fish from here if you go in the morning.

Just visit and watch the locals at work buying and selling fish. Watch the catch taken from the boat to the market area and then sold. Great hour spent here

Whilst visiting the capital city of Oman, Muscat, we wanted to see something authentic and headed to the Mutrah Fish Market. Adjacent to it a new and larger market is being built and I do not think it will have the charm of this small market yet lively early in the morning. Would recommend a visit whilst visiting Mutrah.

I walked around to see all the vendors displaying all their fish for sale. I saw so many types of fish, and watched some of the vendors cutting the fish for customers. Be careful when you are walking to not trip on the small puddles of water.

Nethertheless at 7.30am there was enough activity to take in our this market operates. Small boats arrive at the dock and within minutes their... More

We loved wandering among the stalls to see what was available and how the market operated. The sellers were very friendly and happy to answer questions and allow photos (but ask first) We didnt go first thing in the morning, it would be much busier then, but we were surprised at the types of seafood for sale including a stack...
