Need to buy crabs

I need to buy a bushel of crabs in the Washington DC area, any suggestions? Also how much should I be looking to spend? Thanks.

  1. I'd try the Washington Fish Market on Maine Ave. If you've never been, you should check it out regardless!

    1. Franks Seafood just of I-95 near Columbia, MD...

        1. Rough and Ready seafood in Hyattsville, MD, on the corner of Riggs Road and Sargent Road. Best crabs, best spices. This is a local spot.

            Thanks for the response. I think that I will give them a try this weekend.

          2. I'm sure you can get them at the fish market. But I also someone selling crabs last Sunday at the Dupont Circle Farmer's Market. I don't know how much they were going for though.
