fresh oyster for home

I'll be looking for fresh oysters to shuck at home. Local is great, ideally Wellfleets, Island Creeks, that sort of thing.

Fresh Pond (if still open), Courthouse seafood? Good recommendations?

  1. I have had good luck with oysters from whole foods on the spur of the moment. They usually have wellfleets if I remember correctly.

    If anyone knows of places with good oysters from pacific waters, I'd be very interested!

    1. I wonder if you can buy them from Legal (they do sell seafood in addition to serving it)?

        Chestnut hill has a market. I think they closed prudential

      2. New Deal usually has oysters in this time of year.

        1. Fresh pond seafood has always had great oysters, but not much selection.
