Select Wellfleet Oysters
Sustainably farmed. Harvested daily. Ready for shuckin’!
Inside Wellfleet Harbor, our oysters benefit from broad shallow estuaries and big tides ranging from 10-12 feet. Big tides bring a unique mix of high salinity levels, nutrients and phytoplankton for the bivalves to feed and filter, contributing to their crisp and briny flavor. Regular exposure to air during low tides makes our oysters hardy and better able to withstand shipping, keeping them fresh from the flats to your plate!
All shellfish orders are packed to withstand an extra day of transit in anticipation of weather and service delays.
- Oysters ship fresh with ice packs and soaked saltwater paper.
- Upon arrival, remove packaging and place the mesh bag of oysters immediately in the fridge.
- TIP! Place your oysters in an open bowl so they don’t leak inside the refrigerator. Cover with a damp cloth or kitchen towel to maximize their freshness.
- May be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
- Do Not Freeze.
From ordering to delivery, and then to eating, this could not have gone more smoothly or been more appreciated by the recipients (and the giver), thanks!

This was a gift of oysters from my wife to her brother. The shipping time was excellent, as was the packaging. Her brother and sister in law gave a few to a neighbor, but consumed all of the rest in 2 nights. They said every oyster was in perfect shape; no chips or cracks!

Everything! Delivery, quality and freshness of the oysters... This was a surprise birthday gift for a friend who is freakishly particular about oysters. She was thrilled! Thank you for providing a perfect gift, and making it so easy!
