THIS FALL, ENJOY FRESH MARYLAND CRABS OUTSIDE ON THE PATIO AT WEGMANS
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – Through October, diners craving fresh Maryland crabs need only to visit their local Wegmans, in Malvern, PA (50 Foundry Way, 484-913-9660), King of Prussia, PA (1 Village Drive, 484-690-3560) and Collegeville, PA (600 Commerce Drive, 484-902-1560), for their fun, seasonal Crab Fest. Working with Maryland’s Harris Crab House, the stores will offer fresh live and steamed blue crabs outside on the patio; guests can pre-order crabs to take home or stay and enjoy the festive atmosphere.
“We’ve always been committed to sourcing the finest fresh, local food for our guests – and Harris’ blue crabs are taken from the water, put into their truck and literally driven right to our door, where we steam them and pour them out on picnic tables for Crab Fest,” says Kathy Haines, director of Wegmans in-store restaurants and Market-Cafes. “We’re bringing the best of the Chesapeake Bay inland and offering the tastiest, freshest crabs available.”
Crab Fest will be held at Wegmans locations across the region, including: Collegeville on Sunday, September 9 and Saturday, October 27; King of Prussia on Sunday, September 16; and Malvern on Sunday, October 7. Beginning at noon and continuing until 5 p.m., Harris Crab House will park their truck in front of the store and serve steamed crabs to guests on the patio. Crabs are $33 per dozen, and are also available by the ½ bushel ($79 for approximately 36 crabs) and the bushel ($150 for approximately 72 crabs).
During Crab Fest events, guests are encouraged to interact with the Harris Crab House team, who will be steaming the crabs to order. Guests who prefer to take their crab feast to-go can pre-order them either live or steamed by contacting the Wegmans Catering Department; two days’ notice is required for any pre-order.
