Christmas Day Oysters

Does anyone know if any of the Market places are open that day such as Nicks? Looking for oysters and beer at noon.

  1. As far as I know, all of the markets are closed Christmas day.

    1. All of the Baltimore markets are closed on Christmas Day. Ryleigh's Oyster Bar is on Cross Street just across form the market. I'm betting that they're closed, but you could check.

        your best bet is to buy your own and shuck em yourself. Lots of seafood shops have some good oysters in now,

              Last time I was at the Whole Foods in Harbor East, they had Blue Points ($0.99/ea), Beausoliels ($1.29/ea), Wellfleets ($1.29/ea) and another type I can't remember.

          2. You need to find a Chinese restaurant with a raw bar. :-)

                If they were open then the bar was open, I am sure!
