Where to find fresh crab in Monterey
I will be visiting my brother in Pacific Grove over the New Years long weekend. Is there a place to get live or fresh crab "off the boat" in the Monterey/Pacific Grove/Carmel area? Failing that, is there a good fish monger in the area who will have fresh crabs?
You should probably move your post to the California board as Monterey/Carmel is outside the San Francisco area.
Moss Landing is definitely the place.
I can't find the card I have from one of the fishing boats, but it is on the thread that Melanie Wong refers to in her post.
I found the phone number for Moss Landing's Monterey Bay Live Crab, the Gardenia: 831.901.1013.
