AUSTIN, Texas — Whole Foods Market yesterday announced the arrival of “Shrimpsgiving” in its seafood departments nationwide. The shrimp promotion encourages shoppers to consider using shrimp as a dish or as an appetizer for holiday gatherings this fall.

"Both our fully-cooked and raw shrimp are great grab-and-go value items, and they make quick and tasty additions to special meals, and easy yet elegant appetizers for Thanksgiving or for any occasion during the holiday season," David Pilat, global seafood coordinator, said in a release.

The company will promote shrimp with special pricing — such as pre-cooked, tail-on farm-raised shrimp from Thailand at $8.99 per pound, and raw, shell-on American raised white shrimp at special prices varying by region.
