You know when you buy fresh fish from Martin 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.

"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 2016

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.
