Where is the dungeness crab?

Hi all,
Rita from Lynnwood, Wa here.
I bought some dungeness crab at Albertson's about 3 weeks ago.
I have not seen any dungeness at all, at any of the grocery stores since then.
Is it just bad timing on my part when I'm shopping, or is there a problem with the dungeness crabs this year?

  1. It was all over at Pike Place Market yesterday.

    Pike Place Market
    1501 Pike Pl, Seattle, WA 98101

    1. there's fresh never frozen alaskan king crab around too. we got some at ballard market. if you've never had it never frozen it's a revelation.

      1. Any fish market, asian markets (you've got Ranch 99 and others up there), Whole Foods, Central Market, Ballard Market should have it...

        1. Ditto 99 Ranchmart for Lynnwood area.

          1. I believe HT Oaktree on 99 has a sale this week - $3.99/lb for live dungeness if you buy more than 5 crabs.
