Herne Hill Market
The Portland Scallop Co started life 15 years ago with Jamie Walker and two other divers harvesting King Scallops in and around the Lulworth Banks of West Dorset. They have over the years through local fishermen added a vast array of seasonal fishes with our wild line-caught bass proving very popular. They bring sole, turbot, black bream, gurnard and mackerel and, in season, they have wonderful crab & lobster. They also sell smoked cod and mackerel and their award-winning pates are also very popular. As seasons change so does their range of fish, samphire is available June-July. Their dived scallops recently won Gold At Taste of the West awards and they bring these to market schucked and ready to go. They also fillet, skin and clean on their stall and are only too willing to share cooking tips.
They recently acquired a new boat and will be catching line-caught bass of Portland next month. Soon they will also be demonstrating fish prep and cooking on the stall once a month - watch this space!
