The best place to buy fresh fish in Brighton is the aptly named Fish, near Hove Lagoon. Fish have their own fleet of boats at Shoreham Harbour, and the catch is unloaded straight into the market within hours of being caught. Fish supplies most of the best restaurants in the local area, as well as further afield, and they stock an amazing array of products, from scallops, sardines & mackerel to live lobsters and crab – I even spotted a tray of beautiful fresh samphire.
