Fish market in Hersonissos area

We love cooking and fresh seafood and booked a self catering apartment in Limenas resort. Does anyone know if there are fish markets near by for some seafood shopping? We don't mind getting up at 6 am for that...

there are fishmongers in Heraklion which is 35 mins on bus or it might be worth trying the harbour in Hersonnisos

There is a fishermen's coop shop in Hersonissos, it is in the street that runs from the main road by the Savoidakis bakery shop. Cannot tell you when it is open though in spite of the fact that I live here!

You can also go down to the port itself and find the fishermen selling the local catch very early in the day.

The markets in Heraklion also have fish stalls, (and lots of stalls selling our lovely tomatoes etc.). For you the easiest one to get to is the Tuesday market in Alikarnassos not far from the airport. The bus from Hersonissos goes past the end of the street where it is held (down near the prison). You have to go early though, get there by about 10am if possible.
