Where is the dungeness crab?

ritabwh Nov 12, 2009 11:25 AM

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?

      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.

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

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