Spot Prawns in PDX?

AJ08 May 17, 2008 12:17 PM

Anyone know where I can buy Alaskan spot prawns in Portland/Vancouver? Online info leads me to believe the season is short, just May and June. Bought them at V'cvr (WA) Farmers Market in past years (perhaps from Linda Brand Crab?), but haven't seen fresh seafood there lately. Thx.

    Whole Foods Markets get them in fresh. Call ahead to make sure they have some, they typically sell out.

      I don't think that Linda Brand Crab sells spot prawns...must have been another vendor.

          correction -- OM Seafood is on 76th & SE Powell. Great live seafood there. Tons of live prawns nowadays.
