Where to buy blue crabs in the Triangle?

ediblerock | Jul 8, 2007 05:45 PM

I am hosting a crab feast this weekend, and would like to find a local seafood place where I can buy a bushel of live #1 Jimmies (I will steam them myself). I would like to avoid driving to the coast if possible.

What places would you recommend that you have found reliable? Three places I have already called (your experiences would be helpful!):

Capital Seafood, Raleigh: $150/bushel, prepaid, not guaranteed (the gentlemen said, "if they arrive all dead, they're still you're crabs.")

Earp's Seafood, Raleigh: no large, only mixed medium (m/f), $100

Fishmonger's, Durham: awaiting a call back from the manager.

There is a new place on NE Maynard Rd in Cary for seafood; does anyone know the name?
