St. Marks Stone Crab Festival

There’s just about nothing better to eat than Florida stone crabs and despite the “hype” that we hear from south Florida, stone crabs from the northern Gulf waters are tastier and more plentiful.  Those “jumbos” and “colossals” on menus at fancy south Florida eateries are good, but our “mediums” taste better and there’s more meat to a pound.

The 2016  St. Marks Stone Crab Festival is scheduled for October 22 and is going to be lots of fun!  There will be plenty to eat and you’ll have a chance to enjoy one of Florida’s oldest settlements, first settled in the early 16th century.

St. Marks is located just south of Tallahassee in Wakulla County.
