Santa Barbara Harbor - Fishermen's Market


Every Saturday morning, between 7:30 and 9:30 a.m., commercial fishers sell their catch directly from their boats to the public at Santa Barbara Harbor. This attraction, where buyers can find the freshest fish in the region, operates hand-in-glove with the nearby Farmers' Market. The Fisheries Enhancement Fund helped cover costs of starting the Fishermen's Market, purchasing gear such as scales and ice chests, as well as funding costs of permits and advertising. People buying fish from the boats can also have their fish steaked or filleted at a nearby cutting station, also funded by the Fisheries Enhancement Fund.
