Hello,how much does fish and seafood cost in se1 is it dear
Tuesday 18 January 2011 3.00pm
Problem isn't so much the price, it's that fishmongers are very few and far between. Those that do exist (Borough market mostly) are expensive, and can lack variety (Applebee only ever seem to have Sea Bream and Plaice).

would love to see fresh gurnard, pollock etc etc...

I'm a Londoner and I love fresh fish - it is dear hear.

I am fed up of paying out the teeth aswell.

I could do with someone who sells a large variety of good quality fish at a reasonable price.

How, exactly, can you help me in my fishy quest?

Boss St Bloke. I'm a Londoner too, but now I live in Devon and I can get gurnard, pollack, pouting, sand sole, pilchards, Exe mussels, live crabs and a whole load more at good prices. On good days, when the sea allows him to get out and back, you can buy it from Dave on the beach in Budleigh Salterton, but I guess that's a bit far for you. So why not get down to East St or Brixton Market? They're not too far and until I moved in September they had great fish & didn't charge the Earth for it.

My great grandfather had a horse and cart and he used to tour the pubs of south-east London on weekends selling sea food. He earned a darned good living out of it. I don't think the penchant for sea food has diminished, I suspect it's price and availability that has caused the demise. I suggest you carry on putting out 'feelers' and then, depending on the response, give it a go.
I know this site is not here for the purpose of advertising, but I think you are a special case and a 'good cause' which, judging by the above comments, will make a lot of people happy.
Subject to the response, give it a go for a weekend. Say where you're going to be on a particular day and then set your stall out. I can't speak for James Hatts of course, but I hope he would grant his blessing.
Good luck!
