If you are in Cedar Key don't miss the free tour of the Southern Cross Sea Farms. It was very informative, interesting and well worth the time spent. Our guide was friendly and gave an in depth explanation of how the clam farming operation works. Would highly recommend!

We always stop at Southern Cross on the way out of Cedar Key to fill our coolers with Fresh Clams. Always good prices, very good seafood and they will provide ice to pack it up with.

I have bought seafood here many times and have no complaints what so ever. Friendly folks. They have great clams and other types of seafood to purchase.

We were having an oyster roast and drove over to try the Cedar Key oysters. We bought 3 bags of 50 at $17 a bag and a small bag of clams. I wasn't sure how to prepare the clams, but the friendly fellow helping us told us to throw them on the grill with the oysters. The oysters were a... More

Drove an hour from Crystal River and were looking forward to buying a couple of bags of clams. Although their web site shows they are open on Saturday, they were closed. We stopped before lunch and after lunch. Very disappointing.

Purchased both oysters and clams with a visit to Cedar Key. Good selection of both freshly harvested and frozen items. Enjoyed these items the same day as purchased, quality very good as well as the TASTE!. Can't beat the freshness and size for both the clams and oysters. We are already planning a second visit to Southern Cross. I am... More

Saturday afternoon stopped for a bag of oysters and small clams. The service was quick and friendly. The bags were clean and tagged. The fifty count oysters were a decent size and were brought in the previous day.

I bought 100 large clams and 50 oysters for $35 today-great prices! The only draw back is that they don't accept credit or debit cards. It's cash or check only.

Super interesting tour of clam farming from seeding to ready to ship. The owner who clearly is passionate about his work does an excellent job of describing how the farming saved so many fishermen in Cedar Key who had lost their livelihood after a certain type of net was banned. Cedar Key clams account for 90 percent of the production... More
