Over the years our refrigerated vehicles and mobile cold rooms have helped many hospitality businesses serve seasonal needs. Some of these businesses excel at what Queensland is well-known for – Seafood.
In this post, we look at some famous seafood markets you’ll find right here in Queensland. In no particular order:
Gold Coast Fishermen’s Co-op (Main Beach, Gold Coast)
There’s no better way to ensure you get the freshest seafood than by getting it from the fishermen themselves. Boats leave each evening, trawl through the night and return in the morning loaded up with their fresh catch, selling directly from their boats. You’re actually buying from the locals that made the catch only a few hours earlier!
Harbour Seafood Market (Labrador, Gold Coast)
Popular on the Gold Coast, customers of this marker have come to know they’ll be able to get the best selection of fresh ocean-caught seafood, as well as enjoy small meals in their on-site snack shop. In addition, live oysters are kept in their special tanks and shucked onsite.
The Fish Factory (Morningside, Brisbane)
Well-known and loved in Brisbane, they have a newly renovated fish market, which boasts itself as one of Brisbane’s largest seafood markets. They now offer oyster shucking on-site as well as filleting. They are a full-service, one-stop seafood shop! It’s known to be one of the best fish and seafood markets in Queensland.
