The fish market in Bergen Norway is a feast for the senses. The briny smell of the water from the North sea mingling with the pungent smell of fresh fish. The creamy taste of homemade fish soup mixing with the smell of fresh grilled salmon, cooked to order (for the right price, you could have any of the extremely fresh fish or lobsters grilled to perfection in front of your eyes for you immediate enjoyment).
It was a real taste of Norwegian culture mixed in with a pinch of wry Norwegian wit. It was one of the most expensive markets that we have ever been to (the bowl of Fish Soup that you will see below cost $20! Yikes). Still, highly worthy of an afternoon of exploration if you ever find yourself in Bergen, Norway. Enjoy!

I love food markets! I am always trying to find one in any city I’m visiting. I can spend quite a qhile wandering around different sections- be it fruit and veggis or fish one! Actually my last 2 posts are about food markets- one in Porto and famous Boqueria in Barcelona. Love to see that it’s not only me who sometimes goes to a local market instead to yet another famous monument!
Sometimes, I feel like I could get lost in the local market for hours (husband generally gets bored with it much sooner than I do.)
If that is a monkfish, where’s its robe? Lol! That looks fun!
It was fun…expensive, but fun!
Really like your photos 🙂
Thanks! We had a really fun time wandering around the market!
