Thanksgiving Dungeness Crab Pre-orders
Having Dungeness as the centerpiece of our feast has been a long standing tradition here in the Bay Area and we wouldn't have it any other way!
As some of you may already know we started this venture two years ago delivering freshly cooked Dungeness crabs to families across the Bay Area on Thanksgiving morning.
We spent two weeks prior to Thanksgiving talking to every crab boat that would listen to us (they already had long time buyers set up), posting online and plastering all the local Starbucks with posters to get the word out (they quickly removed them). We stressed over packaging and how we were going to cook so much crab in our commercial kitchen with our limited supply of pots, but we woke up at midnight, and picked up crab from a boat that was willing to take a chance on us. The next thing you know, we were in our kitchen at 2am cooking and cooling crab to get them on the road to homes by 8:00 A.M. It wasn't long before e-mails started pouring in praising our delicious crab and the memories made cracking into their shells to uncover their succulent meat!
This year we are thankful for all the growth we have made since then - for all the valuable lessons we have learned, the new boats that we've had the opportunity to connect with, for our state of the art seafood facility that we now work out of, and for our members who have supported us and our mission from the very beginning,
Thank you for all of your support -
and an especially big thank you to everyone who ordered from us last year and have sent us emails in the past two weeks asking about how you can make our crab the centerpiece of your Thanksgiving meal this year - we are honored to be a part of your family's tradition!
We look forward to picking up our first boat-load of Dungeness of the season and delivering the freshest Dungeness crab for our friends and family to enjoy with their Thanksgiving feast this Thursday!

Thanksgiving Dungeness Pre-order Details
We will be picking up fresh Dungeness crab on Wednesday evening from a couple of our boats to fulfill Thursday morning Thanksgiving orders!
Pickup locations will be in both San Francisco and the East Bay and will be centralized and easy to reach & park at (if you have a business with a parking lot that you would like to offer up please email us - we'll reward you with some crab!).
Cooked crabs will be cooked morning of Thanksgiving so you can tell your guests you went out and caught and cooked them same day ;).
Our customers always rave about how great our crab is and that is because we go the extra mile to make sure our crab comes straight from our boats to our customers in less than 24 hrs - we even pay our boats a little extra to give us the best crabs in the bunch so you will never be disappointed.
This is the first time we will be offering our crabs LIVE to our customers - so jump on this opportunity - it takes a lot of careful planning and we won't be doing it very often!
Please pre-order your crabs through the website - we hope to have some extra available day-of but we do not expect it.

Where: Pickups in Oakland & San Francisco (exact locations TBD)
