“Suck dat head, pinch dat tail” Kelly’s Crawfish at Sacramento Central Farmers Market

Melanie Wong | Oct 7, 2010 11:18 PM

At Sunday morning’s farmers market in Sacramento under the freeway, I saw the hugest crayfish I’ve ever laid eyes on at Kelly’s Crawfish stand. These were priced at $3.50 per pound or 3 lbs. for $10. They’d been pulled from the river south of Sacramento the day before.

Some smaller ones from the rice fields were available at $2.50 per pound. But I only had eyes for the very lively big guys. Three pounds made a great late lunch for two of us. These were big enough that it was worth going for the claw meat as well.

Here’s a local food blog post, “Crawfish Boil”, that has more photos of the crayfish from the same vendor.
