ZeeVerse Vismarkt Den Oever
From sole to gurnard
At the market you will find a broad selection of the freshest fish vailable in Holland at any time. Think of sole, plaice, langoustine, gurnard and monk fish. Not every species is available year-round. Since the flavor of some species is not as good in some periods, the fishermen make a first selection.
The ZeeVerse Vismarkt is held every Saturday morning from 08:30 to 12:00. The Saturday market is closed only when the fishermen cannot leave the harbor due to bad weather.
Accessibility of fish market
Den Oever lies at the foot of the Afsluitdijk between the upper edge of North Holland and Friesland. It is also easily reached from Flevoland via the dyke between Lelystad and Enkhuizen. From the A7 motorway, it is just a few minutes to the harbor of Den Oever.
