Imported seafood bad. Local seafood good. Does anyone know which Charlotte-area grocers carry North Carolina and/or East Coast shrimp? Everything I see in Harris Teeter, Lowes, etc is imported from Asia.
The Peach Stand in Fort Mill (just east of exit 85 on I77) gets shrimp in fresh from the coast. Their number is 803-547-7563. Always a good idea to call ahead to make sure they have some if you are making a trip, but they have lots of other good things too- jams, jellies, preserves, etc as well as Springs strawberries/peaches in season, lunch counter and ice cream parlor. My kids love to go get cones on a hot day after hiking the greenway. Sort of weird to go to the gas station to buy meat and produce, but it is good!
I've found north carolina shrimp at Earth Fare and, on occassion, Talley's. It's hit and miss but a real treat when you stumble on it. I refused to buy shrimp from HT because of the Asia imports, but the other day I also found nc shrimp at their East Blvd location. Good luck.
