Here’s how it works: Seaview Crab Company provides packages of fresh ready-to-cook local seafood weekly for customers signed up for the program. Our seafood is locally sourced from areas such as the Pamlico Sound, Cape Fear River, Topsail area, Masonboro Sound, Atlantic Ocean and the fishing villages of Wanchese and Core Sound. Content of the package will contain a variety of delicious North Carolina seafood. One of our main goals is to support local fishermen and sustainable fishing. We’ll give you handling and storage tips as well as recipes to help you out. We pick out the best fresh and seasonal NC seafood for you each week.

Our CB Market & Market Stand are next door to Port City Produce – where you will find a dazzling array of local vegetables to pair with your seafood package. We will provide you with some recommendations as to which seafood and vegetables/fruits taste well together.

The Summer Local Picks Pack program will begin on Friday, August 4 and run through Friday, September 8. Pick up times are Fridays between 2:00 until close at CB Market, Marstellar Market or Market Stand. You can also pick up Saturday at until close.
