Food markets in Marseille - fish and shellfish

Marseille is of course a great place to buy fish and shellfish. The most famous place is the fish market at the Quai de Belges by the Old Harbour, where local fishermen sell their catch every morning. Here you find fish, shellfish, and squid of every variety fresh from the sea. Walk down and have a look. This fish market was situated in a sidestreet to rue Canébière and sold oysters, prawns, lobsters, and fish. The prices were high though, but freshness is definetely worth paying for.
