Whitstable Fish Market

South Quay The Harbour Kent Whitstable CT5 1AB

A Whitstable classic, the fish market, right by the fishing boats in the bustling harbour, is reason enough for many people to make the trip to town. It’s not desperately cheap – prices are comparable with London fishmongers – but the fish is fresh, much of it is local and wild, and almost all sustainable. As well as wet fish there’s shellfish, raw and cooked, including crabs, lobsters, cockles and whelks. There are takeaways too, and if you’re lucky you can grab one of the few tables outside: kipper in a bun, prawn kebabs or fish and chips anyone?
