Living on the Pacific Ocean coastline means that Southern Californians enjoy the freshest fish available. Since 1982, Andrea's Seafood Restaurant has served residents and visitors to this beloved Ventura County hotspot. Their clam chowder and hand battered fish and chips made them a worldwide phenomenon. But that's just two of the reasons Andrea's consistently ranks #1 as Ventura's best fresh seafood market. So, it should come as no surprise that their Ventura Saturday Fisherman's Market brings in seafood lovers by the droves.

Ventura Saturday Fisherman's Market
Starting at 7 am every Saturday morning, the ocean side of Andrea's Seafood Restaurant becomes the Saturday Fisherman's Market. Only the freshest caught seafood winds up here for the public to purchase. Several local fishermen set up booths filled with fresh fish, clams, mussels, crab, and more. Whatever seafood you crave for your Saturday evening meal with the family is on display here.
Some of the fish up for grabs most Saturdays includes sea bass, tuna, halibut, rockfish, and even sea cucumbers. Since the selection depends solely on what is freshly caught, it varies from week to week. People from all over Ventura and Los Angeles Counties make the trek to Ventura harbor every Saturday for this market in particular. Most of it tends to sell out before the market ends. So, we suggest getting there as early as possible.
Admission to the market is absolutely free. So is the parking. The market operates on a first come/first served basis. Once the fish runs out, you'll be out of luck. However, Andrea's operates its fish market inside the restaurant every single day. If you miss out on their Saturday Fisherman's Market, go inside Andrea's to pick up your fresh seafood. The interior market stays open from 11 am to 5 pm Sunday through Thursday and 11 am to 6 pm every Friday and Saturday.
