Been going to the fish market for years and will continue to do so. Fresh from the sea to the market then to your kitchen...wow! Near the Chatham Bars Inn so you can enjoy a drink under the cabana on a sunny summer day.

A great place to take the kids. You actually can watch the fishing fleet unload their catch of the day. Seals also make appearances for the same reason. A truly aromatic experience for free. If inclined, you can pick up dinner next door at the fish market. Does not get any fresher.

You can park and walk to the pier. The boats bring their catch in in the afternoon and it's fun to see what they have. I was there in off-season - so they didn't have the fish market open - but I'm sure it is awesome when they do. The seals follow the boats in and are entertaining to watch... More

This is a fun place to visit. You can walk out by the docks and watch the boats unload their fish into the buckets. The seals are always around when the boats come in and they are always trying to get a stray fish or two. It's also got a nice view of the ocean and it's free to go... More

I have no idea about the food or anything else. I was simply mesmerized by the colors of the water and the seals parading around waiting for the fishing boats to come in! We loved it here. the views are gorgeous and it was a nice respite without feeling obliged to buy or do anything.

This pier and fish market are a great experience for the family. My daughter and dog love visiting this working fishing pier. The fisherman are used to having small crowds, so they help the kids (and adults) understand what seafood they caught. Sealions follow the fishing boats in hopes of catching anything that falls overboard. The fish market offers amazing... More

The Chatham Fish Pier is a great place to spend time with family and friends of all ages. During the summer it is very busy especially when the boats come in during the afternoon. The seals and seagulls put on quite the show. During a winter storm it is a great place to go watch power of weather in action;... More

Each afternoon the fishing boats unload at Chatham Pier usually 2-3pm. Definitely put this on your list of places to visit in Chatham. Fun for kids and adults and its free!

This is a fun place to go when the fishing boats come in with their catch. Crazy watching all the seals hoping for a free meal. The fish market had quite a large selection.

Always a great spot to add to your Chatham trip! View is gorgeous and i love grabbing a quick snack to enjoy on the pier. Last time discovered that they made sushi to order, got tuna tartar and spicy salmon roll, both were delicious and very reasonably priced.
