Seafood Week at Aldens Fishmarket


Aldens Fishmarket is bringing the Seafish national Seafood Week celebrations to Oxford. Seafood lovers in Oxfordshire have an exciting chance to join in for Seafood Week 2019, which runs from 4 to 11 October. We want to inspire you to try something new, whether that’s a yummy recipe or a variety of seafood you’ve never tasted before. It’s time to change the way you ‘sea’food!


Throughout the week, we will be celebrating this delicious super food with a series of videos, sharing some inspiring recipes, and some money saving offers for our loyalty card members. Not forgetting, a chance to win in our Seafood Week Competition! Each day will focus on our Fish of the Day- where we will have tasters in store, recipe ideas and videos on how the fish is caught, where it comes from and some great ideas on how to cook it.
