It’s time to eat local, y’all.
And, Seaview Crab Company can help.
Over the fall and winter, we offered a different kind of program called Local Picks Pack.
Participants in the program were enthusiastic about supporting local fishermen and eating North Carolina seafood. Feedback was positive, but there were some suggestions (such as offering a smaller share and gearing more towards the local seafood “favorites”) that we have incorporated for our spring endeavor.
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, the Cape Fear River, the Topsail area, Masonboro Sound, the Atlantic Ocean and the fishing villages of Wanchese and Core Sound.
Pick-ups will occur each Friday afternoon/evening or Saturday morning at the market you choose (6458 Carolina Beach Road, 1515 Marstellar Street or 5740 Market Street).
NOTE: We may add neighborhood drop off sites at a future date – we are working on it!
Our Carolina Beach Road and Market Street markets 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 Carolina Beach Produce stand may not open until later in May, but we’ll still give vegetable pairing recommendations.)
The Spring Local Picks Pack program will begin on Friday, April 28 and run through Frdiday, June 23. Pick up times are between 3 and 7:00 pm.
Content of the package will contain a variety of delicious, North Carolina seafood. We will offer known favorites, but as one of our main goals is to support local fishermen and sustainable fishing, we will also be selecting some great fish that you might not know. Don’t worry – we’ll give you handling and storage tips as well as recipes to help you out.
Size of the package depends on which option you select:
SINGLE SHARE: 1 pound of ready to cook NC seafood every week for an 8-week period. $95
HALF SHARE: 2 pounds of ready to cook NC seafood every week for an 8-week period. $180
FULL SHARE: 4 pounds of ready to cook NC seafood every week for an 8-week period: $350
Each package will contain recipes, seafood storage advice and other extras.
(NOTE: Payment for the entire eight-week period is required at the first pick-up)
