Heaps of Chesapeake Bay crabs, fresh caught, tossed with seasoning, steamed and served right there out of brown paper bags. – Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations
If your buying crabs NEVER buy the precooked crabs. First order live ( Talk the price down) then ask the to steam YOUR order. The crabs that are precooked are NEVER fresh !
Maine Ave. Fish Market is one of the great hidden gems of DC. Go here to buy your seafood instead of the grocery store, it is much better quality and you're supporting local business.
Go see Jesse Taylor ... you can get a half a bushel of fresh live oysters for $40!!!
Jessie's steams all crabs for free! Right now (4/21/13) have Florida females in addition to Maryland. Best deals are for bushels but cheap/yummy grab&go food too (ceviche, crab cake, oysters, etc.)
If you want cooked seafood buy from the stand with the green awning. They'll give you free slices of strawberry pie or banana creme pie while you wait!
Sometimes you can haggle the price down. The worst they can say is no right?
Grab fresh crabs from Jesse Taylor's and have them steamed across the street free
Get some steamed shrimp. You will not be disappointed.
Great place to get whole fish, filets, clams, oysters, squid, crabs, scallops without paying the ridiculous grocery/restaurant prices. I would suggest going early, there's less lines, less fish scent.
Best fresh scallops around
A pain to find parking during lunch but I always get great service at all the places I visit.
Parking is a pain but much of it is really fresh. Be sure to shop around the different vendors.
Bring your own music and enjoy fresh crabs steamed on site by the water!
buy a whole fish and stop by the fish cleaning trailer where they'll fillet it for you for $.50/lb.
I can't wait until this market is renovated :-) #HistoricDC
By crab mallets for $1 if you plan on eating your crabs on site. The stand with the live crabs on the right has them.
Do not park your car anywhere without the meter! You will get a ticket as soon as you leave your car. Those cops on bikes are vicious.
Jumbo crabs legs are the best!
Shrimp tacos are boss!
