Default Lobster prices ?

What are the best prices around for fresh lobster ?

I just called the Lobster Connection at the Winnisquam bridge and today's prices are $8.99 for pound/quarters, that's crazy.

Last week you could buy the same for $5.99 or less !

Suggestions wanted, thanks !

Last week Market Basket had them for $5.99 per pound. You can get them there either live or steam cooked...

Last week they were $4.99/lb at Hannaford Meredith....haven't been by the fish counter there yet this week. They've been pretty cheap all summer...cheaper than baloney, in fact...

There is lobster fisherman from ME that sets up in the Faro parking lot every weekend.... he was selling them for $4.75/lb.

I think he advertises in the Laconia Sun

Depends if you want hard shell or soft shell... MB and most all of the grocery store chains are all soft shell...

We usually just zip on over to Rye Harbor typically (and swing by the house to grab the mail) as they are fresh off the boat!

Locally to the Lake - Not sure their current prices, but last year we ran out of time and didn't make the drive to Rye - we bought a solid two dozen from Mill Street Meat Market in Wolfeboro. They were great to deal with, let us order ahead and of course were Hard Shell! Worth every penny more for the hard shell in my opinion. Had everything from the 1.5 pounders to the 2+ pounders.

Needless to say, we've been back several more times and can promise you, no one is hungry once done

Hot off the press: Vista in Laconia is having a truckload sale on Saturday with lobster at $5.99/#. I have no idea about this place, but there’s an ad in tomorrow’s LDS.
