Dungeness season is on! Has anyone found great deals in LA markets?

  • 9

I've been looking for dungeness in local markets the past couple days. Anyone run into good prices per pound?

  1. Want to Bump this thread, I know some CH's have been scouting the SGV, please share! And Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Another thing, sometimes communication can make determining origin of the crabs difficult in asian markets. Dungeys are available year round from Washington and Canada, but I know we are looking for live California crabs.

      1. I saw live dungeness crab at the 99 Ranch Market in Monterey Park for $3.95 a pound.

        99 Ranch
        17713 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia, CA

        1. I think most of the local Korean markets in Koreatown have it on sale for $3.99/lb.

          I was at Woori Market (the old Mitsuwa in Little Tokyo) on Sunday and the tanks were full of crabs!

            still 3.99 as of yesterday @ Woori

          2. 2.99 at most places in the SGV (except 99 Ranch) The list below was all confirmed to have it right before Thanksgiving.
            San Gabriel Superstore
            El Monte Superstore
            Cali Market in the Big 5 plaza in Alhambra

            San Gabriel Superstore
            1635 S San Gabriel Blvd, San Gabriel, CA 91776

            99 Ranch
            17713 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia, CA

            1. $2.99/lb at galleria market on Western & 1st.. There was a whole tank of them and I grabbed 8 for $45.. Need I say, delicious??

              1. Thanks for all the replies. I'll have to make a trip back to the SGV, I'm salivating as I type(not uncommon). Has anyone been to Seafood Paradise Market in Rosemead for crab, a place I have been wanting to try ever since reading about it on this board?

                  Just bought some Sunday from a little seafood market in Chinatown, on the east side of broadway, just north of Alpine, for $3.99/lb. Delicious!
