Another exciting pop up Establishment is underway, this time in the seaside town of Penzance. Already extremely popular with the locals and holiday makers, fresh fish acquired off the Cornish shores is among the best in the country.
When we are being advised to give the popular species a break, cod especially, it is a welcome site to see such a huge array of different types of fresh fish to tempt us to be more adventitious with our cooking.
Mousehole Fish began trading this week on Crouse Corner in Penzance and will be there for the next 4 weeks. Co owner Miss Kane hope that it will turn into something more permanent. And after all, that’s what pop up shops are all about; helping start up businesses gain experience and test the market.
Miss Kane and her partner Mr Hedger have sever years of experience in the fishmonger industry and buy fresh fish direct from the boats as they come in. They also sell to local restaurants and pubs.
At the new Mousehole Fish Shop you will find everything you would expect from a fresh fish shop and more. They are selling red mullet and haddock, but they are also providing more unusual fare like the amazing spider crab claws. If you are passing and fancy a fish supper then you can catch Mousehole Fish 10am – 6:30pm, Monday – Saturday on Market Jew Street, Penzance.
