      Country like flying em in from Boston or Maine

          Yes, thanks. Our local boards like L.A. are for finding chow within that area. If Minks is looking for a local store that sells Maine lobsters, this is where to ask.

          Otherwise, mail order, internet sources, and general chow discussion of national scope is handled on our General Discussion board.

            I went there and didn't get anything in my search. Is it possible that there aren't any comments on live lobster suppliers? Not sure if I'm searching correctly and if so how to post my ? to the entire community.

      1. IN LA - any decent store or chinese market has maine lobsters.

        tehre's a guy at eh santa monica farmers market on wednesdays who has AMAZING looking spiny lobster - pacific lobster. spry and beautiful.they'renot maine lobsters - they're langoustes, but if you like tail meat they're the way to go and they're local so you support a local fisherman and thinkof all the carbon you're saving maybe kinda.
