Maine Oysters – Seasonal Selection
When it comes to oysters, Maine has some of the finest in the world. It is the skill of our producers, combined with the cold nutrient-rich waters of the State that make the Maine oyster second to none.
With a Maine Oyster, you can expect a robust and briny flavor – a true taste of the sea. You can enjoy our oysters in a host of different ways, including:
- Raw, on the half-shell
We ship the freshest oysters in our inventory the day of your order – such as Browne points, Pemaquids, John’s River, Bagaduce, and Glidden Points (to name a few).
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION/CARE: Product ships live. Discard oysters that have broken or still remain open after pressing on their shell. Store in refrigeration upon receipt, covered in damp towels or paper, preferably so they lie flat. DO NOT store in fresh water or ice. Do not store in airtight plastic containers or bags. Best when prepared the day of arrival, oysters will live up to 5 days in refrigeration.
