Cape Town’s Fish Markets – Turning your average grocery experience on its head

 In Bus Travel

Cape Town is home to and famous for many things, seafood being one of those things if not the ultimate. We have come across many interesting places while travelling but how about we take you on a tour through Cape Town’s Fish markets? Let us show you where Cape Town’s finest marine produce is hiding.


Cape Quarter Food Spar

Located in the Cape Quarter in Greenpoint, you can expect to find some of the finest fresh filleted and whole fish. Be it salmon, tuna, hake or anything else you can come up with, they certainly have it and it’s fresh, very fresh.


Willoughby and Co

In the mood for some sushi? If you have a fantastic recipe then you will find the freshest ingredients at Willoughby and Co located on the Victoria Wharf at the V&A Waterfront. Treat your guests or perhaps your own palate with a taste of quality fish. You will never settle for anything else.


Ocean Jewels Fresh Fish

This market catches and certainly sells the ocean’s finest jewels. However, they are travelling so be sure to catch them at Starlings in Claremont on Wednesday and in Woodstock at the Neighbour Goods Market. You can always call them on 083 582 0829 for delivery within the Cape Town area.


Fish 4 Africa

Perhaps the freshest fish are sold by those markets closest to the harbour? Fish 4 Africa is located right on the Hout Bay Harbour and is always well-stocked with shellfish, fresh fish and more, which the staff will prepare for you. There are also branches in Monte Vista and Woodstock.


Mariner’s Wharf Fishmarket

Are you in the mood for some authentic oak-smoked snoek or a homemade fishcake? Mariner’s Wharf delivers your every whim and taste with a selection of other fresh fish as well. Drive on to Mariner’s Wharf in Hout Bay Harbour and satiate that craving.


Kalk Bay Harbour

The ocean is such an extraordinary thing and being able to spot a seal while doing your seafood shopping makes the grocery experience unreal, doesn’t it? At the Kalk Bay Harbour you can purchase the catch of the day fresh off the boats and remember to keep an eye open for those seals.


Die Vlek Vis Huis

Here you will find smoked snoek and angelfish prepared in the traditional way, complete with oak and ash shavings. Can you think of anything better out there? Pay a visit to the Laaiplek Harbour in De Villiers Street, Saldanha and find Die Vlek Vis Huis, we promise this visit will be worth your time.
