Fish Markets along Victoria (around 41st area) have decent prices on all fresh seafood.

T&T would be your best bet. Superstore sometimes have some pretty good deals. Dont get it from Save on or Safeway they are a rip off.

You seriously never heard of safeway and save on foods? They are everywhere.

Other than that TNT is a good place to buy lobster, there is one in Metrotown and Yohan mall in richmond

The best quality ones are on Granville Island, specifically Lobster Man. The T&T crabs & lobsters are not very good.

yeah, heard the lobster man on granville island will probably have the highest quality ones, price wise unsure as T&T will probably beat it on price. but quality, the lobster man.

LoL, what? Most, if not all of the public market shops get their shellfish from Lobster Man and the prices are standardized across the board. The prices are fine for the quality. Sure, there are some bad ones in the mix, but it's rare.

...and why Steveston?? That's the last place I'd go to buy lobster.

Bump for an old thread.

I was in the mood for Lobsters and bought a few from Superstore.. they were $6 each and were a bit over a 1lb each.

Looking in this read I found out about Lobsterman and went on their websites..

http://www.lobsterman.com/catalog/13

Atlantic Lobster Quarters 1.25lbs $25.00
Atlantic Lobster Halves 1.50lbs $30.00
Atlantic Lobster Selects 2lbs $35.00

That's an insane price difference.. to those who've had lobsters from there.. is it worth the price premium?
