I hope you and your family are staying indoors and keeping safe. I'm at home, in and out of the garden, enjoying the breezy heights above Clovelly. I miss seeing you all at my regular markets, but let's hope this self-isolating won't go on too long. And keep cooking up the fish and seafoods and experimenting with new recipes. I may not be on my barrow, but the fish fight goes on! With all best wishes.

STOP PRESS!! From today I’m shutting up shop for the forseeable future. I’m taking government advice very seriously, and I'm going back home to Clovelly to spend time with my family. We’ll all have a lot of time on our hands, so why not spend some of it in the kitchen brushing up cooking skills and trying out new recipes and ingredients? You can tell me about the culinary delights you’ve discovered when this madness finally ends and I’m back on my barrow. Thank you, as always, for your support, I hope to see you all again soon. And stay safe!!

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, 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 make sure you try Dan's fabulous (and addictive!) smoked trout pate.
