Seafood Markets in Panama City Beach

For fresh, local cuisine straight from the Gulf waters, you don’t necessarily have to charter a boat or cast a line over a pier. Just visit one of Panama City Beach’s vibrant seafood markets while in town. Our seafood markets are at the heart of our community and culinary scene, offering a wide variety of freshly caught fish, shrimp, oysters, and other delectable eats, including prepared meals. 

Plus, if you reel in something great yourself, the market staff is on hand to help you clean them up so you can spend more time enjoying coastal living with your family and friends.

Fresh Seafood, Ready-Made Platters & More

Stop by Shrimp City for fresh-caught shrimp, crab meat, and fish, brought in daily. In addition to raw fish and shellfish, many markets offer prepared food to their hungry customers. Smoked tuna dip, for example, is a local favorite and can be found at spots like Local Steamer Seafood Market, which also has cases of giant snow crabs, oysters, and fresh bay scallops, plus steamed and ready-to-eat seafood platters.

Buddy’s Seafood, a retail seafood market and takeout steam bar, certainly has something for every seafood lover. Here you’ll enjoy the best foods Florida has to offer—from grouper or red snapper to lobster tails and key lime pie. 

And your time with us wouldn’t be complete without a meal at the legendary Capt. Anderson’s Restaurant & Waterfront Market. Dine-in or pick up a fresh catch to-go at the market, which sells crab cakes, stuffed flounder, scallops, and more, plus homemade seasonings to go along with your selections. This beloved culinary destination was established in 1967 and has won culinary awards and the hearts of loyal customers. 

Panama City Beach has no shortage of local markets with friendly staff happy to help prepare your selections, so all you have to do is slap them on the grill once you head back to your campsite or beach rental.

Bring Your Catch In

If you plan on chartering a boat or fishing at one of our world-class piers, our seafood markets are available to help make your catches the best tasting of them all. 

At Capt. Anderson’s Seafood Market, for example, you can leave your cleaned catch on ice for up to three days or even ship it home on dry ice to enjoy a taste of PCB even after the vacation is over. 

For a gulf-to-table culinary experience, visit Panama City Beach and enjoy delicious eats and sun-soaked memories.
