Was disappointed when we arrived to find it was really just a shop. Was expecting more space, more seafood and more stalls.

Went there at xmass 2017 to buy some fresh seafood, was a fairly small set up but had lots of variety. Was quite expensive so i didn't buy as much as i would usually.

Very fresh seafood and ice offered to get supplies home cold. The best tasting and reasonable price. I come here regularly, when I have the inclination to eat seafood. Bring a cooler bag or esky.

Went to buy some prawns yesterday and they were around the same price as the supermarkets in town. We bought the 5kg box for $125 which worked out cheaper if you have time to eat that many. We had 7 people and a few days...More

I can see the Fish Market from my balcony and it is a 15 min walk to the best fish shop in Darwin. All Australian produce (unlike Mr Barra next door) and a wonderful range of fish and shellfish. So lucky to have this gem...More

Fresh seafood. Lots of fish on display. Next to Mr Barra near Duck Pond harbour. I go for the SA oysters, which are so fresh and yummy. Prices cheaper than restaurant price, so worth the trip.

I have just consumed 12 oysters with lemon, at home, after purchasing at the Darwin Fish Market. Best to eat right away. Easy to eat with a fork and dispose of shells responsibly in plastic bags. I enjoyed my 'handful' of local, fresh Tiger prawns,...More
