On our trip to Pier 39, we walked towards Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco’s historical fishing district. Think fresh seafood, the freshest you can get!
Multiple stands in front of a row of restaurants, selling the freshest they had to offer.
Of all the seafood at the wharf, the Dungeness crab is the most renown. Fishermen set up a boiling cauldron of water and offered fresh crab on the streets of the wharf, offered in paper cups, for visitors to enjoy. To this day, it’s still done like so.
Although the paper cups have expanded to paper bowls and trays, mixed seafood cocktails, lobster rolls, calamari, and other concoctions, the market is by far, the best place to go for the freshest seafood.
Crabs being boiled by the pound and readily served within minutes.
