Christchurch Fish at Maltby Street - Food Find

Great to find a Dorset co-operative of small inshore fishing boats selling their Friday catch at the Bermondsey arches today.  Stating ecologically friendly fishing methods, they're normally to be found at Blackheath and Kensington Farmers' Markets Saturday and Sunday too.  Fantastically lively shrimp, crabs and lobsters, along with cockles, mussels and palourdes, beautiful fresh sole and 'three-bearded Rockling' - a new one on me but my research shows they make good eating if you can get them fresh.  Too soon to say if they'll be a permanent feature on my Bermonday Trail, but you should find them between 40 Maltby Street and The Ham & Cheese Company's arch at 1 Ropewalk every Saturday until Christmas.
