Shop and eat your way through Fish Market, the site that has served as the meeting place for fisherman, traders, and locals alike since the 12th century. Located in the very center of the city on the wharf, it is one of the most popular outdoor markets in Norway and is often bustling with action. Browse the stalls of fresh fish and other seafood and view the live catches from that morning. Purchase crab, shrimp, caviar, smoked salmon, cod, or even whale from one of the friendly fishmongers. Sample some of the local cuisine at one of the many vendors along the market. You can also buy souvenirs, local art, flowers, fruits, and vegetables here. Arrive early to avoid the crowds. A visit to Fish Market represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bergen tourist route planner to plot your vacation.

  • Ok Bergen is expensive for eating like other places in Norway. The restaurants in the fish market sell fish and fishy meals. Day one we went for lunch there - fish soup was thick with fish and very cr...  read more »
  • The fish market is kind of overpriced, however the food tastes great, the scenery is awesome, and overall and experience I wouldn't miss. It is kind of a shame that the workers are all foreigners, and...  read more »
  • The fish market is not the place where the bergenserne is all. They survive solely because of the tourists who will have to pay blodpris.

  • Lively market with shopkeepers that call out, ask where you're from, and offer samples. A real treat. Amazing variety of sea food available. There is only 1 public toilet.
  • Went here as a tourist, so good for that. Lots of cooked and fresh seafood. And if you fancy it you can get whale meat cooked in a variety of ways. Seafood was really good and fresh but prices are super high, so you know that you're paying for the experience to a large degree. Luckily they speak many languages here so they can cater to a lot of the tourists. Open most of the day and they have some non seafood items as well and various smoked salmon and dried fishes in case you want to take something away.
  • John & Claudia Thursday 5 May. Only found one stall. No advice re where we could eat fresh sea food. It was far better when I was there in 1955. Where have the stone troughs with the live fish gone? Could not find bus for City Tour with Bergen Card. No local bus either for a tour. Most said it was a discount card and we had to pay more. BAD! BAD! BAD!
  • Local seafood, great chefs and excellent food. Price is not bad compared to what you get. Have an ok selection of good wines that goes well with the food. Limited seating and not possible to wash your hands without paying extra
  • A few stores here selling quick meal and fresh seafood. OK place. Historic place. Centrally located and plenty of other options around if you are not in the mood for fish.
