Fish Market, Bergen
Shop and eat your way through Fish Market, the site that has served as the meeting place for fisherman, traders, and locals alike since the 12th century. Located in the very center of the city on the wharf, it is one of the most popular outdoor markets in Norway and is often bustling with action. Browse the stalls of fresh fish and other seafood and view the live catches from that morning. Purchase crab, shrimp, caviar, smoked salmon, cod, or even whale from one of the friendly fishmongers. Sample some of the local cuisine at one of the many vendors along the market. You can also buy souvenirs, local art, flowers, fruits, and vegetables here. Arrive early to avoid the crowds.

On Saturdays, it's even more interesting as the market expands to include a few more stalls offering local meat, dairy and bakery products. The restaurants directly on the stalls are fine, but I would recommend those under the tourist information, as these represent only a comparatively small surcharge, but offer much better food.
