Spot Prawns in PDX?

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.

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

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

      1. OM Seafood out on 65th and SE Powell has these live in the tank (in their store),along with lots of other stuff.

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