LIVE BLUE CRABS
The Blue Crabs are Coming! The Blue Crabs are Coming!
Not British, Bayou.
Yeah, they talk funny and taste even better.
Live blue crab from Louisiana and Alabama will be delivered to our shop
on Thursdays, barring bad weather.
Our supplier lives in Lafourche Parish in Louisiana
(waaay below I-10 for you purists) just east of Houma.
The family operation has been crabbing for 40 years
and gets the crab from East of the Mississippi River and from Alabama.
They are salt water iced on the boat to keep the gills moist and packed
in ice for their ride to Arkansas.
You must order your live crabs by closing time (6 pm) on Tuesdays for
pick up on Thursdays.
You must put down a deposit by way of credit card, debit card or cash
Food stamp cards (EBT/SNAP) CANNOT be used for deposit.
CRABS MUST BE PICKED UP ON THURSDAYS.
We will NOT hold crabs overnight, if you order them for Thursday, they will
be sold to someone else if not picked up that day. Why? Because they are a
delicate creature and cooking right away is best.
You MUST bring a LARGE ICE CHEST to pick up your crabs. We will NOT
allow crabs to leave our store without a proper container.
Please bring a bag of ice with you.
Prices are based on the weekly market and vary from one week
to the next.
Prices vary depending on the size of crabs you order and whether they
are female or male.
Prices vary depending on the amount you order as well.
We have no control over the weather, so delivery and availability
can change because of this.
