Where can I get fresh raw oysters?

I am in the baltimore/Pasadena/Annapolis area and am looking for fresh raw oysters for my birthday next weekend. Where should I look to pick up 2 dozen or more?

          I agree with you, Hue, I have never been disappointed with the seafood at Franks. My problem is controlling myself so I don't buy more things than we can eat in a reasonable amount of time!

            what are the hours,,,,,can anyone shop there,,,, cash, checki, plastic?

          2. The New WholeFoods Market in the Annapolis Towne Center in Parole has an unbelievable seafood department with the freshest catch. Annapolis Seafood Market is also a good suggestion and there is one in Severna Park. I don't know if they stock oysters from elsewhere though since they are not in season here yet.

              They do, but the selection is not vast.
