About Us

The Fish Market building, hosts a variety of fresh seafood retailers, a boutique food market, restaurants, licensed cafes, an extraordinary wine encounter and the ever popular Auckland Seafood School. At lunchtime our open-air courtyard and cafes bustle with a steady stream of diners. By night it's the aromas of Asia that permeate the air as our standalone Hong Kong style and Korean eateries, come into their own.

We have behind the scenes tours that take you to the heart of our fresh fish auction, processing and retail operations, you are also welcome to come down and check out the hustle and bustle of the weekday wholesale auction at 6AM.

Albert Sanford built the first fish market in the early 1890s- at the corner of Albert and Custom Streets. The Market today is located in Jellicoe Street, a short walk from the central city.
