No more softshells at Whole Foods ????

vivian | May 15, 2006 11:29 AM

Earlier this season, I bought some fantastic fresh softshell crabs from Whole Foods. I asked for them to "clean" them, because I wasn't sure how. The fishmonger there did clean them & showed me how, which was helpful.

This weekend , I went back, and asked if they had any softies, and they told me they will not be carrying them any more. Apparantly, a very loud customer got very upset after they saw softshells being cleaned, said it was cruel , yada yada yada, and took it to the management. So they are no longer selling them !

Why does a loud , very vocal minority get to ruin it for the rest of us ?
Where can I buy softshells live ?
