Where to buy oysters in brooklyn

I'm looking for recommendations for good seafood stores to buy oysters at a reasonable price in Brooklyn and/or Manhattan. Any suggestions?

  1. Dimartino wholesale seafood on douglas street Between 3rd & 4th ave
    you need to go before 11:00 am mon - fri to be sure, also do not waste their time for 1 dozen oysters .
    they will have a least 3 types
    also frozen blocks ( 4lbs) of domestic shrimp are a great deal
    good luck

      So - what's a 4 lb. block of frozen shrimp cost you at DiMartino? I am definitely going to check this place out, but is there any way to get a good sense of what you migth be spending beforehand for shrimp, lobster, oysters, scallops, etc.?

    2. I always get mine at the Blue Moon stand in either the 14th St. or GAP greenmarkets (Wed/Sat respectively, if memory serves). The website (http://bluemoonfish.com/fish/)says they're back now and should have ersters.

      1. Fish Tales on Court between Bergen and Wyckoff is great. Closed on Sundays.

        1. You can get oysters (and clams and mussels) from W&T Seafood, a wholesaler in Clinton Hill/Bed-Stuy, just order online and then pick them up from the warehouse: http://wtseafood.com/shop
