Our mission is to sell seafood caught by North Carolina fishermen. Locals Seafood started selling NC shrimp from the back of a truck in 2010. Co-founders and college buddies Lin & Ryan started the business when they noticed the lack of high-quality local seafood available in the Triangle. Today, our team drives to the NC coast 3 to 4 times a week to buy fresh seafood. We bring it back to Raleigh where we cut, pack, and sell it. We believe everyone in the state should have access to NC’s coastal bounty. After all, it’s your public trust resource.
Our most popular items often sell out before the weekend. We encourage customers to reserve their weekend purchases ahead of time. Cutoff time is noon on Friday.
