Anybody seen soft shell crabs for sale at any seafood markets? Preferably near Echo Park, but I'm willing to schlep.

many thanks!

    Haven't been able to follow through on any of the recs, just yet ...

    1. I got some at McCall's Meat and Fish in Los Feliz, they were excellent, if pricey at $8 each. I've gotten them before at Fish King in Glendale, they were just a little less.

      1. LA Fish in Downtown LA, 4th & Central ish area, big building, you can not miss.

        1. I got them at Fish King in Glendale last week at $4.95 each. They were great.

          1. Bought them frozen in past from the busy open market in/on Redondo Beach Pier near the arcade (sorry, name escapes me) and Ranch 99 markets. Sorry, may not help you in Echo Park though.
