I sell Rock Crab every Saturday morning! Come early, line can form as early as 3:30am, market opens at 5:30am and I’m usually sold out long before 9:00am. Sorry, I do not take sales special orders, or hold crab in advance.

While it is unlikely that I won’t have crab on any given Saturday, weather and the sea may not often agree. Subscribe to my Mailing List to receive the Dory Fleet News on Friday and Follow me on Twitter to read the Catch-of-the Day as I’ll post my catch from the boat sometime Friday evening:
