Are you ready for a finger licking good crab boil? Maybe you prefer soft shelled crabs or crab cakes. Whatever your preference is – we are pleased to let you know that bushels of fresh Maryland Blue Crabs have arrived in the Raleigh area here at Country Market Store in Willow Spring, NC.
Maryland blue crabs are perhaps the sweetest most succulent crustaceans available on the east coast and this year they are in plentiful supply thanks to a blue crab population boom in the Chesapeake Bay! There is no denying their popularity and if you’ve ever traveled to Baltimore, Maryland and had a meal at one of their many crab houses then you know how sweet and delicious they are.
Maryland Blue Crab Prices
While Chesapeake blue crabs are in plentiful supply this year, their price will still fluctuate overtime based on a variety of market factors. We plan to have blue crabs in stock all summer long and we’ll update our blog with the market price as often as we can. We will be offering blue crabs by the dozen, the bushel and if you order multiple bushels we are sure we can work out a special discount for you!
You can also special order “Jimmys” [large, heavy male crabs] from us when you pre-order.
