Savory Sight: Norwegian Fish Market

Depending on how much you like seafood, fresh-fish markets can be near paradise or unpleasantly stinky. Since I love just about any kind of ocean bounty, especially when it's fresh, I'm drooling over the photos of the Bergen, Norway, fish market that FinnLover recently posted in my Savory Sights group.

This was FinnLover's first visit to her new hometown fish market, which features live fish, high-end seafood dishes, and everything in between. According to FinnLover:

As you walk around the counters, the fishermen offer pieces of their product to taste, and everything is packed so the tourist can bring some stuff back home, like gravlax, smoked salmon, dried whale, peppered fish, caviar . . . There are also several kiosks that sell sandwiches, fish and chips, king crab legs, and warm dishes with salmon and shrimps.

Don't forget to share your own yummy food photos in the Savory Sights group. To see more mouth-watering pics of the fish market,

I went here! My brother bought disgusting smoked whale meat (which I objected to for many reasons). Unfortunately, he then carried it in his backpack for 12 hours as we traveled on a speedboat/bus/kayak from Bergen to the rural western fjords. Ew.

I was just in Norway at the beginning of the month and we couldn't find any whale at the fish market. It was quite disappointing! You pic looks amazing time I go back to Norway I really want to go to Bergen. Apparently it's one of the most beautiful spots in the country.

That's so cool! I just moved here. We're setting up the apartment right now. Luckily there is an Ikea in Bergen because everything is crazy expensive in Norway. I was in Stavanger last week BTW because of the strike at the airport in Bergen. I landed there. I didn't see much though.
