We shopped here years before and had a good experience so we came back this year. We went twice this trip to buy shrimp and both times we were pleased with our purchase. If we go back to Destin, we plan to shop there again.

Staff were wonderful in helping us pick out our fresh catch to take home while camping at Camp Gulf. They also recommended Capt Chris of Sea Winder to charter a fishing trip. Both are impeccable. Highly recommend Sexton's for your fresh catch and Capt Chris...More

If you are in Destin, Fort Walton Beach, or Sandestin this is still best freshest seafood market around. Not cheap except for the head on fresh shrimp, but still worth every penney. They dont take credit cards, but they do have an internal shop ATM...More

This is THE PLACE to go for fresh shrimp and fish. The selection is great and everything is nicely displayed. It’s always clean and the service is excellent.

Fresh fish on crushed ice, clams, mussels and loads of fresh shrimp all sizes shell on or peeled. They have styrofoam ice chest that they will pack your fish in with crushed ice for travel. Great stop for a healthy fresh catch.

They had 4 or 5 different types including 1 peeled and a few with heads and tails. I think they were $9.99 a pound up to $15.99 or so based on size. We got the larger ones as we were grilling them.

Hi Benice4me, I'm pretty sure they will steam shrimp for you. Don't know if there's additional charges though. The Publix supermarket in Destin (across from Destin Commons Shopping outdoor mall) steams shrimp for free... More
