What could be better than to breathe the iodine air of this market that smells so good of the sea?

Vis, schaal- en schelpdieren, oesters… vul je met smaken!

Sourcing fresh fish is easy when you are near the Côte de Nacre and is one of the destination’s gourmet pleasures.

Visit the Courseulles-sur-Mer fish market and your local fishmonger.

Fill your basket with sea bass, lobster, mackerel, prawns, pollack, mussels, periwinkles and whelks….

When the products of the sea take over your plate…

Here, it is the fishermen’s wives who sell the products of fishing in this place which has kept all the charm and authenticity of the old fish stalls.

It is this unique and particular atmosphere that I like to find, this atmosphere which alone characterises this small fishing port.

As you approach, you will hear the laughter of the fishmongers, always very professional and attentive.

And then very quickly, the noises will mingle with the scent of fresh fish.

Not forgetting the seagulls who also have their place in this charming setting and who will decide to make themselves heard by fighting for a small piece of fish stolen from a stall.

“No middleman, from boat to plate”

As soon as the crates are unloaded from the boat, the sale can begin. The Courseulles-sur-Mer fish market located on the Quai des Allies will delight lovers of fish products. “St. Pierre, turbot, sole, shellfish, oysters, scallops, everything is there”.
