live lobsters and seaweed/rockweed near Westford, MA
Hi - Are there any places in the Westford, MA area where we can pick up fresh/live lobsters and seaweed/rockweed? I want to put together a lobster clambake (on the grill) over labor day weekend and the last time we did it (in waltham), we picked up the lobsters and rockweed from James Hook (and spent an arm and a leg). We'll be new to westford and still learning the ropes.
Thanks in advance!!
First, let me say, welcome to Westford. What part of town are you moving to? The family and I are over by Groton Road.
As far as fish markets, there is Fishbones as was stated. If they don't have the seaweed, I am sure that with enough notice they can get it for you.
The other market that was alluded to the Lobster Tail, as of last time I was in that area, went out of business.
Let me do a little bit of checking around to see if I can find any good places for you, a friend of my wife's is a wholesaler, so that is how I will find out for you.
aw.. thank you for the kind welcomes greygarious and alan!
Alan - We're moving close to where you are, I believe. We'll be near Lake Nabnasset, off of Groton Road. Were a little hesitant because of the asphalt plant, but are moving forward with hope that Westford decides against the asphalt. Thanks again for checking around - I'll check back periodically just in case.
So far, I'm liking the people in Westford.. thanks again
Try Fishbones in Chelmsford center - it's a restaurant and seafood market. There is also a seafood market - can't recall the name, in the little strip mall on 110 with a Wendy's. Market Basket carries live lobster. I'm not sure about seaweed on any of these but if you call ahead perhaps they can get some if they don't regularly have it.
Welcome to the area!
