Oysters - along thruway NYC - Albany

Hello ,

I just asked on NYC board , is there a good fish monger - oyster seller somewhere along the Thruway from NYC to south of Albany. Need oysters for a party and not looking to go broke in getting them. Would also like to have a nice place to regularly stop to get some fish.

      This is the best choice for sure. Only an hour from Albany and the store is less then a mile off the thruway. They general have a couple variety of oysters available at any given time.

        @georgeb, I don't know if you still receive notifications on a question you posted over a year ago, but you might want to check out this thread you started last year.
        You are finally receiving suggestions.

      2. Go the Adams Fair Acre Farms in Newburgh - 3 minutes from Exit 17 off the Thruway. Excellent fish department. You can call a head to find what you need. Last time I was in Gadaleto's in New Paltz the place did not look very good and the restaurant was juts plain terrible

          Not sure where you're located or how far you are willing to travel. Can get great fish/squid/mussels/clams/oysters at the Troy Farmers Market on Saturdays from Pura Vida Fisheries out of Suffolk County.
