The Fish Market of Hawassa

Whenever you stop by Hawassa one of the must not miss to be visited in Hawassa is the fish market. Locally known as “Amora Gedel”, the Fish Market at Hawassa Lake is a nice spot to see how locals eat fried and raw fresh catch fish for breakfast. It’s an interesting place to visit specially at weekends in the morning when all the fishermen meet up to sell their catches of various fish and exotic creatures. It’s a bit crowded and you would be bugged by many venders if you luck you can see a couple of hippos as they avoid the crowd. But various monkeys and birds especially pelicans and ducks are there. But still the main attraction is the market itself.
