Award-Winning Crab Cakes Potomac

 

Best of Bethesda, Award-Winning Crab Cakes

We believe in the highest standards…from customer service to the top quality and variety of foods we offer here at The Market including our crab cakes which have been awarded the BEST crab cakes!

We are honored that those high standards have earned us some great recognition and awards through the years. We were recently awarded “Reader’s Pick, A Top Vote-getter as “Best Neighborhood Market” and “Best Place to Buy Prepared Foods” in Best of Bethesda 2019. A huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to those of you who support and vote for us!

Among the things we are very proud to be recognized for are our Award-Winning Crab Cakes. We have been serving the same original recipe for 18 years with the only change being we now offer a gluten-free version made with rice flour instead of panko breadcrumbs. Our crab cakes are made daily, often two times per day, and are overflowing with fresh jumbo lump crabmeat in a large 6½ oz. portion. They are SO GOOD that we sold almost 40,000 of them last year!

Did you know that the biggest producers of crabmeat in the world are Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines? We only source from the Northern Hemisphere, always from the Gulf of Mexico and we rotate our suppliers based on season to guarantee fresh, never pasteurized, jumbo lump meat. We get our crabmeat from Venezuela in the Winter, Mexico & Texas in the Spring & Fall and from the waters off of Louisiana, Florida & North Carolina in the Summer.

Our crab cakes are available fully cooked (just reheat them in the oven for 10 minutes), or uncooked (bake them for approximately 25 minute or until golden brown). And they are always served with our own exceptional tartar sauce, remoulade and/or cocktail sauce on the side.

And ready for this… If you really want to impress a crab cake lover, we SHIP them via FedEx Overnight!

Just give us a call at 301-765-8001 or send us an email to make arrangements.

If you’ve had our crab cakes, then you know how good they taste and we appreciate your loyal and continued business.

But, if you haven’t tried them, check this off your bucket list, so can say that you have had the very BEST crab cakes around…

We promise!

Beef at The Market

  • December 21, 2018

Best Beef Potomac Market River FallsWe strongly believe that the industrialized food system in America is broken, with the greatest culprit being beef and pork raised in CAFO’s (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) or Feed Lots.

CAFOs are horribly inhumane to the animals and incredibly destructive to the environment. While they are very efficient and keep the cost of meat low, it is a little known fact that CAFOs contribute more to the destruction of the ozone layer than do all of the cars and trucks on the road combined.

In addition, the animals are given large amounts of growth hormones so that they can be brought to market sooner and are given daily doses of antibiotics to ensure that their crowded living conditions don’t lead to illness. We don’t eat factory meat at home and it is against our principles to sell it in our Market.

We believe grass fed is best and the reason is simple… an animal’s diet has a direct impact on the nutritional value of the product.

For example, the meat from cattle that eat only grass contains two to three times the amount of CLAs (Conjugated Linoleic Acids) compared with grain-finished beef. CLAs are healthy fats associated with reduced cancer risk, reduced cardiovascular disease risk, and better cholesterol levels. Grass fed meat is leaner, and lower in saturated fat and cattle raised on grass are less likely to be given hormones and antibiotics. Grass-fed beef has also been found to have a healthier ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids.
ALL of our meat is pasture raised and grass fed (some of it is finished on grain), humanely raised, free of hormones, steroids or antibiotics while being intensely flavorful, nicely marbled and super tender!

The truth of the matter is, meat from cows that graze freely on grass for their entire lives is the best for your health and the for health of our planet and both of those things are very important to us.

Yes, it is more expensive as family farms are not as efficient as factory farms, but your health and the health of your family is priceless.

We source our beef from:
