I checked the sack price at "Your Dekalb Farmer's Market" here in Atlanta,

$1.54/lb

I asked them where they came from and they said "Louisiana".

Maybe I need to start buying them and shipping them back for $2.99/lb.

Here in Shreveport live are selling for $2.29-$2.49lb. Cooked range from $2.49 lb. up to $3.99lb. We are planning on supper being 10 lbs of boiled. I hope they are bigger than what we got 3 weeks ago. We paid $4.59lb cooked for them then and they were some of the smallest crawfish I have ever seen.

RAHiggins1, I can't believe you are getting them so cheap in Atlanta. Lucky you.

I'm not sure how the contracting works with Louisiana farmers and fishermen, but I'm thinking that somebody might be locked into a set price.

As for outragious local prices, my guess is large orders are filled and shipped first and there aren't many leftover.
