Reminder: LABOR DAY WEEKEND
What a hot one we’re having lately. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend this past weekend. It was very busy at the store again and we greatly appreciate each and every one of you for your support.
Just a reminder that Monday Sept. 7th. is Labor Day. We will be open all weekend and if there is any special orders that you need to place, we have plenty of time. We are only reminding everyone so you have enough time to start planning what you will be needing for your outside grilling or maybe even a big shrimp and crab boil. Or maybe you’ll only need some of the best Cajun Crab Dip around to share with your friends and family.
ALL OF OUR SUPPLIERS ARE CLOSED ON LABOR DAY.
LIVE BLUE CRAB
Just to keep everyone updated, over the last couple of months we started our Live Blue Crab Program again.
We are working directly with one of the largest Blue Crab suppliers in the industry. They are one of the largest suppliers that supply the Maryland Crab association on a daily basis, shipping thousands of pounds of Live Blue Crab to many of the major restaurants in the Maryland area.
Our Blue Crab program has been working great since June and I hope that everyone who enjoys Blue Crab can now expect to get some really nice large and lively crab. For those who have not experienced eating them in the past, it’s a lot of fun and it does make for a good reason to have friends and family over. It could become addicting. So be prepared.
When we started a couple months ago, all we could get was full bushels of crab(45 lbs)and now that our orders have picked up considerably our supplier is now splitting bushels for our customers.
Each bushel weighs 45 pounds. That’s approx. 9-10 dozen crab and we only bring in male crab. All of our Live Blue Crab come from our gulf and are delivered to us on Friday’s and Saturdays.
You do need to call in and reserve your order as soon as possible and when you get them, you will be amazed at the size and liveliness.
LIVE BLUE CRAB:
#1 MALES: 6.99 LB *****(full bushels only)*****
#2 MALES: 5.99 LB (1/2 bushels and full bushels)
45 LB BUSHELS AND 1/2 BUSHELS ARE AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY’S AND
SATURDAY DELIVERY…MUST RESERVE ORDER BY 2:00 ON THURSDAY FOR FRIDAY DELIVERY AND 2:00 FRIDAY FOR SATURDAY DELIVERY.
CREDIT CARD DEPOSIT REQUIRED.
***** Yes, we can do #1 1/2 bushels only if the other half is sold, if not you will have to drop back to a #2 Crab*****
For those of you that will be in town this Labor Day Weekend, we have a great selection of some wonderful tasting fish on the grill.
So what I have done for everyone this week again is to list the most popular fish that we are carrying in our store for the whole week along with this weekend also I have listed a group of fish we carry that are vacuumed sealed and frozen so you can stock up and you won’t have to get out as often in this heat. I hope you get an opportunity to try some of them, I promise you that you will be amazed at the quality and how easy it is to prepare.
Remember, what we don’t carry fresh, is caught on boats that have to stay out for a week at a time and these boats process the fish as they catch and vacuum seal and flash freeze right on the boats. Same goes with shrimp. Be careful if someone says they have fresh shrimp, because who knows how long it’s been out of the water. I prefer my shrimp frozen and bagged at sea.
A very important note for everyone to understand, with fuel(diesel) prices the way they are right now and in the future, many commercial fisherman cannot afford to fish day boats. So if they did, they would pass the cost of fuel onto all of us. That’s why many have gone to the larger commercial boats that stay out longer before coming to shore to drop their catch.
