Hi can anyone tell me if there is a place to purchase near the Quarter where I can buy some to bring home? Thanks so much.
If you mean fashiomed into jewerly, i think the french market would he the best shot. I dont really remember anything other than gator heads.
You'd have a sack of salmonella by the time you arrived home unless they were precooked properly and packed in dry ice. No Seafood markets near the FQ. Try Big Fisherman on Magazine Street. They're called Crab Fingers.
B-I-L gets them, along with other seafood, down in Lafitte, LA, and has them packaged in dry ice, and seafood shipping box. He then sends “Counter-to-Counter” on Southwest, and I pick up my box of seafood.
Now, I have seen folk ship seafood as checked luggage, but one DOES need to have it packaged properly.
