Where to buy fresh shrimp?

There is a stand before we hit the bridge to Hilton Head that sells shrimp would like to know if anyone has stopped there before? How's the shrimp and do they provide the ice? I need about 10 lbs. of shrimp.

Any other recommendations or suggestions? Thanks!

We always stop at Bluffton Oyster Company, right on the docks in Bluffton. Only about a 10 min detour on your way in. www.blufftonoyster.com

We always buy shrimp and fish at Barnacle Bill's - a great little seafood shack just down the road from Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove. Sometimes there are even musicians playing outside. Quite the experience to visit this place!

South Carolina shrimpers are going broke. The roadside stand is selling imported farm-raised shrimp. Nothing wrong with that, but know what you're getting. While the vendor scoops shrimp out of a plastic cooler, ask yourself - a trawler and crew spent two days fishing so this person could sell me shrimp out of a cooler?

The cheap shrimp you find is not local. The roadside vendor with the great prices won't give an honest answer to the questions "Was this caught locally? Has it been frozen?"

Go to the docks and know what you're getting, or shop on the side of the road and know what you're getting. You can buy ice at the gas station.

Benny Hudson Seafood on Squire Pope Road sells shrimp fresh from the dock at a family owned market. Benny Hudson is not affiliated with Hudson's restaurant. If you call an hour or more in advance, they will peel and de-vein the shrimp for you at a very modest price - totally worth doing.

Same day, locally caught shrimp are worth a premium and might be the best shrimp you've ever had!

Another source of local shrimp is the Piggly Wiggley at Coligny Plaza. Each Pig is a locally owned grocery in many ways does their own thing.

The Martin family which owns this store, has always sold local seafood., including shrimp.
