People regularly stop in to visit our market because they can always depend on a wide selection of freshly cut fish fillets, hand picked crab meat, clams, shrimp & oysters, crab cakes and other homemade seafood specialties that are truly unique to the Chesapeake Bay area.

“The crabs were great! Thank you for the extra seasoning... The kids and grandkids took your flyer and left me with none. We are going to order your crabcakes for Thanksgiving this year. Thank you, again. Come see us someday.”
