To see the fish market, you have to get up early, one week before 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. Many traveling cars are parked near the fish market. I live very close and watch the morning glow early. The Hamburg Fish Market, located on Grosse Elbestrasse in Atona, Hamburg, has a history of 300 years. On May 2, 1703, the religious ancestors of the Hamburg people were granted permission from the City Council to sell fish between Sunday morning and 9:30. This is known as Magistratsverordnung in Hamburg, North Germany. About 700 fishmongers sell cheese, sausages, fruits, vegetables and even clothing in open-air markets with an area of 21,000 square meters. In addition, it has another feature - "also sells breakfast and fish products, here also sells French products. There is also a fish and aquatic exchange near the water. Previously, the church had a central place in people's lives. According to Christian tradition, Sunday is a day of rest and no work is allowed. Fishermen and fishmongers worked hard for half a day to get permission to sell fish on Sundays. Because aquatic products tend to rot and deteriorate in hot summer, and to ensure that people do not miss Sunday services, the church stipulates that the fish market opens at 5 a.m. and closes at 8:30 at the latest. This rule has been in effect for only one hour - "closing at 9:30. Of course, many travel guides say that the opening time of winter is seven o'clock. That's because it's too late in winter in Germany. Who gets up at five o'clock in winter to go to the market? This fish market sells very rarely - "Traders pick up different kinds of goods in the public eye, and then shout a total price, and then pick another one after they sell it. The price here is about the same as "jump price". For example, I've seen two or three kilograms of grapes for 2 euros, a large basket of fruits with rattan basket for about 10 pieces. Howling is one of the best in the hamburger fish market. Many vendors turn their trucks'back compartments into platforms, stand on the platforms, and face the people standing and watching below. They are like actors singing grand operas. They display all their housekeeping skills, make good use of their luck, open their voices, sell their goods and make fun of them. They are quick-witted, witty and funny, and there is no lack of wisdom in them. Wonderful monologue. In bursts of laughter, people buy goods one after another.
