The Batumi Seafood Market is located at the entrance to the city, and offers a wide selection of locally caught fish for your table.
Here you can buy dorado, which has been considered a delicacy in Mediterranean countries for centuries. You can also get Black Sea turbot or kalkan, which is very popular among fish-lovers, and Caspian shemaya, from Persia, which is very delicious whether it is fried or boiled and smoked.
Fish-lovers never say no to a Mediterranean sea bass, and Black Sea red mullet and mussels.
The market is busier during the resort season, and its busiest days tend to be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as these are the days when Batumi residents can make time to come to the market, and when many local tourists make their way to the coast.
So, when you’re next in Batumi, why not browse the fish market, pick your favourite, and have it cooked right there in one of the market’s restaurants?
