For some of the freshest seafood in the East Bay, there is no better place to go than Lucky Seafood Wholesale. This live fish market has been an East Lake staple since 1997. They maintain an unbeatable selection of in-demand seafood like crab, lobster, abalone, and oysters. Be the hero at your buddy’s weekend BBQ and show up with a bag of live oysters. Or, invite loved ones over for a homemade seafood dinner. No one is disappointed when they find freshly boiled crab on their plate.
Visitors from all over the Bay Area love the fact that they can choose their items while they are still alive in the tank. Not one for seeing your food while it’s still moving? No problem! They have a great display of freshly cleaned seafood at the front of the shop. They also have a basic produce selection so you don’t have to stop anywhere else before preparing your dish.
They get really busy on Fridays and Saturdays, so stop by early or during the week if you don’t like a crowd. Street parking can be found along E. 12th St or one of its cross streets. Be sure to grab cash before your visit; they do not accept credit cards.
