Fresh Raw Seafood in the FQ? Any?

Anybody know a source for fresh raw shell-on shrimp, etc., in the FQ? Not sure what the shell-off shrimp is at Rouse's on Royal but it sure is tasteless. Want to cook seafood Saturday night in the quarter but don't have a car. Thanks in advance!

  1. There's a couple new stalls in the French Market which have raw fish, I think. Give 'em a try. Better yet, if you get this before noon, head over the the Farmer's Market at Magazine and Girod (not in FQ but easily walkable) for fresh shrimp, drum, bream, crabs.
