Here's a familiar face! We’ve all seen Dan Garnett selling his ﬁsh at markets all over North Devon. There’s not much Dan doesn’t know about ﬁsh, from catching them to cooking them. Local ﬁsherman, until recently a Clovelly lifeboat crew member, and unapologetically fanatical about ﬁsh and ﬁshing, Dan conducts his own one-man crusade for the North Devon ﬁshing industry. He's committed to sourcing and selling the freshest local ﬁsh of the ﬁnest quality, straight off our local boats.
Turn up at Dan's colourful barrow at one of his weekly markets and you'll go away with more than just a ﬁllet of cod in your shopping basket. Make sure you’re not in a hurry – Dan’s bound to buttonhole you about the wonders of ﬁsh and the delicious dishes you can cook up with them. If you’re lucky, he may even divulge one of his famous recipes.
So why not visit Dan at his barrow and buy the very best locally caught ﬁsh and shellﬁsh? And don't forget to go along to the popular Farmers' Markets now in full swing on Bideford quay. Make sure you try Dan's fabulous (and addictive!) smoked trout pate.
