Have you had trouble when trying to find your local Fishmongers in Dorset?
It wasn’t that long ago that finding somewhere to buy fresh fish outside of a supermarket was difficult, especially in East Dorset. Since the pandemic forced the first lockdown in March 2020, our local fishing industry suddenly had no restaurants to supply to and began supplying direct to the customer.
Since then, customers have began to taste how great local fish caught right on their doorstep is and sales have soared …and fishmongers have began seek permanent premises.
Now you can find your local fishmongers across Dorset, sourcing their fish right from the fishing boats coming into quays and harbours along Dorset’s coast – from Christchurch to Lyme Regis. If you are looking to buy some local fresh fish, then do see our list of Dorset fishmongers below.
I have also found a couple of fishmongers who are offering home delivery so you don’t even have to leave your kitchen to order!
I recommend checking opening times with the fishmonger’s listed below before visiting. You can also find them on our searchable map based Directory here. Find your local fishmongers in Dorset below…
