Greek businesses deliver seafood to homes over Easter as the Sydney Fish Markets have restrictions imposed


Hundreds of Greek people will be heading to The Sydney Fish Markets this Easter weekend in the hope of finding the freshest seafood for their Palm Sunday meal.

This year, they can expect beefed up security and extra long waiting times as the government imposes new restrictions to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

“Every single person who wants to go to the fish market this weekend will have to have an infra-red temperature check before they are allowed on site,” a statement released by NSW Police reads.

“There will only be 400 people in the whole fish markets at any one time, while obviously adhering to the social distancing rules.”

Now if you still plan on heading into the markets, many of the seafood retailers have made adjustments to their stores ahead of the upcoming weekend.

In fact, Greek-owned seafood retailer, Musumeci Seafoods, and De Costi Seafood have both put limits of only 100 people allowed inside the store at one time.

Faros Seafood in Marrickville is also continuing to provide fresh seafood to its loyal customers, with people standing in long queues outside asked to stand two metres apart. They’re also taking orders via the phone.

But one question still remains. What about those vulnerable people in the Greek community who are unable to physically visit the fish markets in the first place?

The elderly have all been told to stay at home amid the coronavirus pandemic and yet they are the most likely candidates to cook a special fish meal for Palm Sunday.

Fear not because here are some more Greek-owned fish markets offering home delivery alternatives:
