where can i buy crayfish?

Anyone know if there's somewhere in the district that I can buy crayfish? For cooking, that is. I had the shrimp and crayfish etoufee last night at Eatonville and while it was good, it inspired me to do it better!

  1. One of the vendors down at the Maine Avenue Fish Market was selling live ones when I was down there this weekend.

      They usually have prepared crawfish in 5-lb cryovac bags at Maine Avenue, but yeah, they sometimes have them fresh.

    2. At my H Mart in Wheaton/SS they have something call mini lobsters or small lobsters or something like that but I am pretty sure they are crawfish. They are live.

      1. I've seen frozen crawfish tails at Harris-Teeter.
        Saw them this week at the Acme Store in Easton, MD. From Turkey. That was a new one.
