Oyster shopping on the Cape

emannths Aug 5, 2011 10:32 PM

Has anyone bought oysters, preferably Wellfleets, on the Cape recently? I'd like to find them for $1 each, and anywhere between Chatham and Provincetown is fine. I'm happy to by in quantities of 100 if necessay (i.e., if they do it "wholesale" only). I've seen threads on this for the Boston area over on that board, but nothing for the Cape.

Any leads?

    If you don't mind travelling to East Dennis you can buy them direct from the grower...$1 each.

      Just bought a few dozen at Cape Tip Seafood in Truro. .99 every day, but they charge a bit more if you want them shucked and on the shell

      Mac's Seafood in Eastham on RT 6 as well as Wellfleet harbor often have oyster specials on weekends for 99cents each. Usually though this is "off season' and not in summer months when demand is up. You should check them out though.
