Agreed to host a dinner party? Well, you're going to need seafood. In Greek, faros means lighthouse — so let Faros Seafood be your beacon to guide you.

The freshness and quality at this beloved Marrickville fish market are impeccable, so you'll be able to prepare anything from prawn tartare to a baked snapper that'll blow your guests minds. And, it goes without saying that the customer service at this longstanding family business is always exceptional. They unsurprisingly love to talk seafood, so they'll happily assist you with ideas for dishes or serving suggestions.

The market has been a staple of the Marrickville community for over 50 years. George and Dorothea Bananis, who emigrated from the Greek island Limnos, set up the oyster shucking business on Buckley Street in 1969 in the rear garage of their house. Over the years, it expanded to include all manner of seafood with the couple's son Peter now running operations.
