Where can I buy fresh blue crabs?

Judy Royal

This time of year, you should be able to get these from-the-sea culinary gems at just about any seafood market in this area. One that stands out is Seaview Crab Company, 6458 Carolina Beach Road, Wilmington [Map this]. It’s made up of commercial fishermen and retailers who specialize in blue crabs and sell direct to the public via roadside seafood markets, UPS shipping and the market.

Here are a few markets in other parts of the area that will likely have blue crabs:

Cape Fear Fish Market, 1515 Marstellar St., Wilmington [Map this]

7220 Wrightsville Ave., Wilmington [Map this]

Blackburn Brothers Seafood, 440 N. Lake Park Blvd., Carolina Beach [Map this]

Motts Channel Seafood, 120 Short St., Wrightsville Beach [Map this]
