It is the mission of the North Carolina Seafood Festival to promote the availability and consumption of locally harvested seafood throughout the Festival and with our food vendors. Those vendors serving NC caught seafood will be promoted and designated with NC Department of Agriculture banners. Ultimately, we would like to see 100% of food vendors serve at least one locally harvested NC seafood item. The link below is a listing of seafood wholesalers you can contact regarding purchase price and availability.
