With October comes Maryland Seafood Month–one of the best times to enjoy delicious and fresh Maryland seafood. If you’re not quite sure how you are going to celebrate, we have put together a few events, ideas, and recipes all centered around appreciating the great catches available in the area this fall!
Maryland Blue Crab
Some people insist that you have not really truly enjoyed the best crab until you have tried blue crabs in the fall. Maryland blue crabs are at their most delicious during the fall months when they are fattening up for the upcoming winter. And what better way to celebrate Maryland Seafood Month than by enjoying Maryland’s most iconic crustacean? Try out this simple steamed crab recipe or if you are not in the mood to cook, head on over to Price’s Seafood in Havre de Grace, Maryland and try out their delicious steamed crabs!
This October, Maryland residents will be able to take part in not one, but two oyster festivals!
U.S. Oyster Festival
From October 18-19, 2014, the U.S. Oyster Festival is coming back to Maryland. Head over to Leonardtown, Maryland and chow down on all types of oysters, whether you prefer them raw, grilled, fried, or any other which way you can cook an oyster. Some vendors even cook oysters into desserts! Learn more about the festival here.
On Saturday, October 25, 2014 head over to Chesapeake Bay for the annual OysterFest! Featuring typical fair entertainment, activities, and artisan shopping, the OysterFest also has–you guessed it–a ton of fantastic seafood! There will also be attractions like floating boat museums, cooking demonstrations from local restaurants, and more. Check out their event page for more details!
