[SEA] Where to buy oysters

  • k

Where's the best place to buy lots oysters (well, several dozen) that sells them fresh and cheap?

  1. I'd try any of the seafood vendors in Pike Place Market.

    1. I get my oysters at Mutual Fish, on Rainier just north of MLK way.

      1. Get a bushel at Jack's Fish Market in Pike Place Market, cheap and delicious.


        1. If you'd like a scenic drive with your oysters, check out Blau Oyster on Samish Island. About 90 minutes north of Seattle. Call and order ahead and they'll have them ready for you. Nice people, great oysters. And while you're in the area, you can stop by a neat little specialty wine and food spot in Edison, Slough Foods, and the excellent bread bakery next door, whose name escapes me at the moment. A very nice day trip. Susan C.

            The bakery is called the Bread Farm. We visited both the bakery and Slough Foods in May and were very impressed by the food offerings at both.

          2. The seafood guy at the University Farmer's Market has really good oysters--both in the shell and bottled/shucked for frying and stews.

              Which are sold by Taylor Shellfish, that Jamesongirl mentions above.
