Buying fresh NC shrimp in the Triangle - where and what price?

I'm a native to Florida, so I'm not familiar with how much I should be paying for fresh local shrimp around these parts. Back in FL, the going-rate was around $6/pound. Needless to say, it's unreasonable to expect such around here.

How much should I be paying, and where should I be getting it? I had a craving for shrimp today, which is not very convenient considering when the non-grocery store spots usually set up shop with seafood. Paid $13.99/pound at Whole Foods...

Should I stop by Tom Robinson's?

Is that guy who used to park himself across from the Durham Farmer's Market still in business, and if so, when is he usually there?

What about the seafood person who sets up a stand in the parking lot of Mapleview Farms?
