Hatteras Shopping: Seafood Markets

Hatteras’ villages, or seven sisters as they're known, are rooted in their fishing village heritages, and the culture remains very much alive today. Expect to find a bountiful supply of the freshest fish, shrimp and crab around in Hatteras at the seafood markets. All the seafood markets are owned and operated by locals, and they’re patronized by locals too, so you know the quality is top notch. The freshly caught seafood at these Hatteras shops varies by season and availability. Buy it sashimi-style to take home and prepare any way you like or head to one of the markets that will steam it or sell prepared take-out dinners and sides. And if you’re too hungry to wait, a few of the markets also have onsite restaurants.
