Good Source for Live Lobsters in the Salem Area

Velda Mae Apr 27, 2010 08:28 AM

I'm planning a trip to the Peabody Essex Museum and would like to get some live lobsters while I'm up there. Is there a particularly good fish market I should know about? I'll be there on Saturday. I'm quite familiar with the area so please feel free to send me to neighboring towns if they've got the goods.

    Although Market Basket sells "live and kicking lobsters", I prefer to get mine at Cherry Street Fish Market in Danvers. See: http://cherrystfish.com/ Also, during farmer's market season, there's a guy who sells lobsters at the market (market was on Thursdays last year, I think).

      Go over the Salem Beverly Bridge towards Beverly, take a HARD right at the bottom of the bridge, go 50 yards then you will be at:

      Lynch Lobster Co‎
      38 Water Street, Beverly, MA 01915-5027
      (978) 921-8088‎

        Rowand's in Beverly under the bridge has the best seafood around, lobsters are plentiful!

          Just a personal preference for Cherry Street vs. Rowand's. I totally forgot about Lynch Lobster. that would be a great choice. I must admit it's been some time since I actually bought lobster as I live near generous lobster fishermen neighbors!
