Each trading day at Billingsgate Market offers buyers an opportunity to see the largest selection of fish in the United Kingdom. Daily arrivals from the coast and overseas ensure a continuity of fresh supplies and with some 40 merchants trading in close proximity in the Market Hall, competition is keen. In addition to such a wide selection of fish and fish products, the Market offers buyers a comprehensive service with tenants dealing in cooking oils, potatoes, trade sundries and specialist restaurant and catering supplies.

A delivery service is available serving London and the Home Counties and arrangements can usually be made for supplies to be dispatched to most parts of the country. Billingsgate Market is therefore able to offer an excellent one stop service to the busy trade buyer. We are also open to the public.
