Mail Order Oysters

Cousin of mine wants the name of a place to order oysters from the Pacific Northwest. Can anyone provide a company who ships? I have
farm-2-market, but wondered if there are others...maybe in the Hood Canal area or on the coast. Thanks for any help.

  1. We live in the desert southwest & have ordered from Taylor Shellfish Farms twice with great results. The box arrived on the date they said & the gel-packs inside were still very cold. Every oyster was alive & healthy. One minor complaint is that she never emailed nor included a paper invoice which I thought odd. Regardless, highly recommended.

    Cheers... &, slurp!

      +1 on Taylor. We've ordered a half-dozen times nd always been thrilled.

    2. Are you looking for in the shell or shucked? My favorite Hood Canal purveyor is currently selling only the shucked oysters as the weather is too hot right now to ship in the shell:

        +1 for the Hama Hama Oyster and Shellfish company, we were fortunate to get some out of the water at low tide a few weeks back to throw on the BBQ, best ever!
