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

      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.

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

          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!

                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!
