  1. Personally I'd buy them close to home, like at 99 Ranch or Berkeley Bowl.

    From Dillon Beach, best shopping's in Petaluma.

    1. Maybe call Hog Island and see if they have any. It's just up hwy one. There is another place on hwy one too, but I can't recall the name.

      Or, rent equipment from Lawson's Landing and do your own clamming on the beach. They still do that there?
