Default Fresh Seafood Market

My wife & I made the move from Lexington, KY to Mount Pleasant about 2 weeks ago. We have been in search of a fresh seafood market, one know where the boats are coming in and you can buy seafood from either the boats themselves or a local market that purchases the seafood directly from the boats. We've been told there in one near Shem Creek. Is this the case? If so, what is the name? If not, where can we find suck a market? Thanks in advance.

Mt. Pleasant Seafood Company has two stores, one at Shem Creek and the other in the Boone Hall Farms Market on Highway 17. Mt. Pleasant also has a Whole Foods Store that carries fresh fish.

I was astounded at the lack of fresh seafood when I got here.
Still am.

I use Crosby's. One on the way to Folly on the right hand side & one at the base of Lockwood on Spring Street in Downtown off 17A.

Mt. Pleasant Seafood also does the Mt. Pleasant Farmers Market on Tuesdays.

We get ours from Crosby's on James Island. I grew up with the owners daughter and know the family well. There seafood has always been the best and yes, you can sometimes buy it right off the boat.

Ladson Seafood is also good. It's about as fresh as it gets without being "right off the boat"

Also, there is a small "mom and pop" place in GC that we go to a lot (mostly for shrimp and soft shell crabs). They're pretty good also. I forget the name but its on St. James Blvd not far from "5 points".

the freshest crab? Sonny Whites crabs on Johns Island, he also sells to many of the markets here

shrimp? go to the docks in Rockville, I used to work those boats way back when... freshest shrimp and fish you'll find, straight out of the water

lookin for a local market? crosby's, or ladson's seafood, or starvin marvins on dorchester rd not too far from leeds ave

the guys selling shrimp on the side of the road on dorchester rd near the airport have fresh shrimp from the rockville docks too I believe

not a ton of seafood markets because most people just go catch their own around here...

Speaking of catching their own. How would a person go about learning to do that? I think I would enjoy it but have no idea how to begin to learn how to do it. Thanks in advance for the info.
