We are not affiliated with Billingsgate Market itself. This is only a fan site.

We offer a brief guide about the services provided by this market in East London.

Many processed or 'added-value' fish and fish products are on display such as cured and smoked fish and roe; prepared products ready for the table; fish soups; cooked shellfish and pates.

Billingsgate is the United Kingdom's largest inland fish market. An average of 35,000 tonnes of fish and fish products are sold through its merchants each year. Approximately 42% of that tonnage comprises fish imported from abroad. The annual turnover of the Market is estimated to be in the region of 300m

Where does the fish come from

Billingsgate is served by almost every port in the United Kingdom-from Aberdeen to Penzance. Most of the fish is transported by road directly from the coast and arrives at the market in the early hours of the morning.

Imported frozen fish is usually shipped in large refrigerated containers. Imported chilled fish is often airfreighted - sometimes from countries thousands of miles away-or arrives by sea via roll-on, roll off ferries. Live imports include lobsters from Canada and eels from as far away as New Zealand.

Billingsgate Market Guide - Fish selection

the biggest fish market in Europe

Welcome to the largest inland fish market in the U.K.

ish MarketWe are pleased to welcome you to our newly developed Billingsgate Market website.

Our new site offers many features, including information about the Market, online application forms (for both tenants and visitors), merchant information and the Market's wholesale fish prices. Fish prices are the average sample prices taken from the merchants and they are updated regularly.

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 54 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 poultry, cooking oils, potatoes, trade sundries and specialist restaurant and catering supplies.

A carrier 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 thus able to offer an excellent one stop service to the busy trade buyer.
