Question. A buddy and I would like to have a bunch of friends over on Labor Day weekend and cook up a mess of lobsters. We are planning on travelling to "somewhere in New England" to purchase said lobsters. Our goals are to get them as cheap, fresh and by paying as few middle-men as possible. We'd love to get right from the fisherman if poossible.
My question is does anyone know of such a place? Are the pick-up truck fishermen as pictured above common? Could they handle an order of 30-40 1.5 pounders? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
hey mjambro! Got any connections?
We were in Maine yesterday, and saw several guys selling direct, but none were as cheap as the occasional supermarket sale that we see here in Massachusetts. My advice is to post again in a couple of weeks (just before you come up), and see who is offering the deals then.
A few places were doing 9.99 lobster rolls. We paid a little more,,,,,,,$15 at a sit down place with water view inc a bowl of excellent chowder.
