The fish market in Bergen has been an important meeting place for merchants, fishermen and the people of Bergen. The word 'Fisketorget' was first mentioned in the City Law of 1276 and was an open area where people could come to buy fresh seafood or just hang out.
The market has many small tents where you can buy fish, seafood, and souvenirs. At the left hand side of the painting, you can see 'Zachariasbryggen' in white, while parts of 'Bryggen' and 'Kjøttbasaren are' visible in the background. This painting is based on the fish market the way it looked in 2012.
