There are two great places to buy the best seafood and fish in Jersey for a beach picnic or barbecue. The famous fish stall of the Fresh Fish Company on the Victoria Pier of St Helier is heaven for foodies with seasonal fresh spider crabs, local mackerel, turbot, Dover sole, John Dorey, monkfish, and plump local scallops as well as freshly cooked lobster and crabs. They also cook dishes like Posh Fish & Chips, prawn cakes, or freshly prepared king prawn and lobster Thai curries. Another spot for picking up fresh fish is Beresford Street Market, St Helier, with its fresh fish stalls intertwined with several eateries where you can try locally grown oysters, Chancre crab and lobster. Just across the road is the central market selling a wide range of local fruit and vegetables and other produce in a beautiful glass domed building.
