FL vs VA blue crab - why huge price difference

dwkayak | Nov 7, 201607:52 PM     20

At the DeKalb Farmer's Market here in Atlanta, I can buy 16 oz of lump crab from either Virginia or Florida. The Virginia product sells for about $36, the Florida product for about $17. I'm certain the Virginia product is blue crab. the plastic tub from Florida has a drawing of a blue crab on the lid so I assume it is also. I sure don't want to pay $21 more for a seemingly identical product but if it's true that you get what you pay for, I will. Anyone have any idea what would account for the rather dramatic price difference?
