Where to buy oysters in Philly

I hope to make a trip into Philly in the next couple of weeks and buy a varieity of oysters to try...I like to bring them home and shuck myself. Asking for any recommendations. Wondering about what would be available in the Reading Terminal Market or South Philly.

  1. Go to Ippolito's at 13th and Dickenson. They usually have six variaties of oysters daily. If there is a particular type of oyster you'd like to try - call them 24 hrs in advance and they will most likely be able to get it for you (They are the retail arm of a wholesaler)
