Buying fresh black mussels (such as PEI) near mission valley

afinkle | Dec 17, 201002:10 PM

I know they have mussels at the supermarkets like Ralphs, but 6.99/lb is a bit expensive. Last time I bought from Whole foods ($$) half were dead. I returned them and the manager gave my money back plus a huge batch of carefully checked live mussels. Still, I would rather not have to deal with that again.

I know most people here don't seem to cook mussels at home, but being from the east coast, it was a great easy home cooked meal.

Does anyone have a decent place in town they go to buy live mussels?
