You know when you buy fresh fish from Hobbs Fishmongers in Market Harborough, that you are not only getting the finest quality produce available but also the best informed service and experience of any trader in the town.

You'll also be supporting a dedicated advocate of responsible and sustainable fishing to help protect the continued supply of healthy fresh water fish and the future of our seas.



The present family owner is Jenny Hobbs, daughter of Martin and Nora Hobbs who purchased the business back in 1969.

Jenny and her staff have passionately upheld the standards set by her parents, consistently supplying the best selection of fresh fish and shell fish in the region, quality local produce and of course the great customer service that the business' reputation has been built on.

As Jenny assures on her website:

"Our staff will be very happy to prepare your fish. De-scaling, filleting or gutting and bread crumbing is all part of the service. Nothing is too much trouble".

And if you'd like some advice on preparation and cooking options, you only need to ask.

Depending on the catch, supply could be cod, haddock, hake, skate, lemons, dovers, trout, salmon, brill, squid, oysters, fresh prawns, brown shrimps, red mullet samphire, and much more - all of the highest fresh quality and beautifully presented.


"Brilliant, a true fishmongers that I'd love to see more of.  You lucky people - shop local and keep these hidden gems alive!"  Alan S.  25th April

Hobbs Fishmongers represents one of the high quality, long established independent businesses in Market Harborough that combines character and charm with a traditional history of informed service  - the backbone of the town and a feature arguably to be protected.

"The fresh line caught Halibut that I bought from Hobbs this week was amazing.  The farmed fish from supermarkets are too small and thin to get the amazing textures from the large line caught fish."   Mark M.  September

And they don't just supply fish.....:

They also stock a range of fresh poultry and game as well as excellent local produce including honey from local bee keepers (when available), and fresh free range eggs and duck eggs.

But if you love fresh fish, or even if you haven't bought it in a while, we highly recommend you get along to Hobbs Fishmongers in Market Harborough town centre and get re-acquainted! You won't be disappointed.
