Seen any Maine shrimp yet?

I read the season opened on Dec 1, 2008. Has anyone seen them in boston area shops yet? I love those little guys and a shrimp dinner sounds good tonight...

      No, I just want to know where I might find them today.

    2. I saw a sign up yesterday at New Deal in East Cambridge for Maine shrimp (also Nantucket scallops) but didn't actually go in, just give them a call.

          I stopped by New Deal last night (Monday, Dec. 8) and they did have the sign up but I was told that none actually came in. I'm going to call today or tomorrow to see if they're going to get them in. Will post back. Will they let you reserve some?

            Most fish markets will allow you to "reserve" specialty items. Just call and say, "Would you please hold onto a lb (or whatever) for me and give your name..and appx time you'll be by to pick them up.

      1. I'd like to know if anyone has seen them with the heads on, please. I find them so much tastier.


        1. I called River street Whole Foods this morning and they had them as of yesterday. I'll get some tomorrow. If anyone finds the head on, please let us know.

          Dinner tonight is a Craigie!

          1. Craigie on Main has the head on Maine Shrimp on their bar menu currently.
