Wellfleet Oysters in Davis Square

Ernie Diamond Sep 27, 2006 05:09 PM

The Wellfleet Oyster guy is at the Davis Square Market today. I already got mine so no one has to worry about edging in on my stash. This guy is great. Please buy from him so he'll keep coming back.

PS - I asked him for certain items today (chowder clams) and he said that he would try to get them in next week. If you go, ask for what you don't see there and maybe there will be a wider selection next week.

    A couple of weeks ago I asked the oyster guy if he could shuck me a couple of oysters, and he said it was illegal for him to do so -- so get out your oyster knives, folks!

      Sounds great! Does anyone know how late the Davis Sq. market stays open?

          "Normal" Oysters (even shells) - .70

          I really want to get over there today (soon). Are these to take home and shuck yourself or are these to slurp right there on the spot?

            Damn...I meant to ask him that. I'm sure he'd open one or two for you if you asked nicely but no, these are meant to be shucked at home. It takes a little doing but for $.50, who's complaining?
