The Fish Factory

Morningside

The Fish Factory in Morningside is renowned in Brisbane for its wide array of fresh seafood with the added bonus of having a bistro attached.

This local fish market has been fishmongering locally sourced, fresh seafood since 1976, from whole fish and fillets to shellfish and more. Recently renovated, the market now boasts itself as one of Brisbane's largest seafood markets, as well as being the oldest.
