Hello Stu1
Welcome to Ag Nik. Not sure when the Fishermen return with their catch.However just to the left of the slipway there is a long metal table/counter where the fish are brought to sorted and weighed. If there are lots of cars parked in the area its a good chance the market is in progress. Of course you could always ask at the shop or a bar. Try Freda`s she is very good and speaks English. A good place to watch it from is the Limani Bar with chairs and tables by the wall just above the stall. Hoping this helps. Also have a wonderful time in July. We will be there from the 19th of June for a fortnight.

I am not entirely sure but I think I remember reading somewhere that the fish market was at the harbour between 8 and 9 am every morning. Locals can correct this if I'm wrong.

well i did get to see the lady cutting up a Tuna or 2, and the fish being sorted, didnt wanna do the touristy thing too much, you know, pics and all that, as didnt think it was right to do but just enjoyed watching to be honest.

Just on food for a mo, we were in Trachilla, sat having a nice cold Fanta, and a chap turns up in his 4x4, long silver half circle thing on back, yes we didnt know what it was, but the locals went to him, opens it up, bingo, ''Barbequed Pork'', he takes a chunk off and offers it to me good lady, and the locals bought some, absolutely brilliant, what can i say.....my whole experiences touched me, lit a torch so to speak...
