It doesn’t get any fresher than this for fish aficionados!

Every fish lover's dream, De ZeeVerse Vismarkt  in Den Oever. Every Saturday morning between 8:30 am and 12:00  you can buy fish directly from the Wieringer fishermen. They bring the fish ashore on Friday so you can’t get much fresher than this. And they throw in their fishing tales for free. Every week is different. The season dictates what is on offer. If you want to smoke fish at home, then buy fresh fish at the market and you'll get the best smoking tips as a free bonus.

Curious about what you can do with the fresh fish? Then visit one of the regular cooking demonstrations to pick up some new ideas. Or you can just buy some traditionally smoked fish of course. Do you have any special wishes, such as North Sea crab or langoustines, and you don’t want to run the risk of missing out? Order through the webshop. You can also buy vegetables and wine at the market to accompany your fish. And who knows, while strolling along the stalls you might find another local product that you didn’t even know you were looking for.

Not in Den Oever on a Saturday? No problem. Uit Eigen Streek has a Concept Store in Hippolytushoef where you can buy Wadden delicacies and culinary souvenirs every day of the week. You prefer to go to a market? Then the weekly market on Thursday mornings in Schagen might be a good alternative.
