There are fewer things better than a freshly shucked oyster; gently navigating your tiny fork and oyster knife around a Kumamoto half shell and inhaling the fragrant, briny scent before finishing the shellfish off with a triumphant slurp — it’s a truly wonderful feeling.
Unfortunately, depending on your location, enjoying fresh oysters can prove to be difficult. If you aren’t living in a shellfish paradise like Maine (or even on the East Coast or West Coast), obtaining fresh seafood is an expensive and often complicated affair.
Luckily, there is a solution for all of you landlocked seafood lovers! Suppose you aren’t in the mood to make the arduous trek to the grocery store or are simply suspicious as to whether or not those Kumamoto live oysters are actually from the Puget Sound. In that case, you can skip your local seafood market entirely and buy fresh oysters from Taylor Shellfish Farms.
It may sound ludicrous, but shopping for shellfish online is one of the best ways to ensure that you are purchasing the best oysters available. You may be worried about how safe buying fresh oysters online is, but it is a simple and common practice. Most seafood markets and oyster bars that aren’t located near an oyster farm have their shellfish shipped in from areas where the bivalves are more plentiful, like San Francisco.
Purchasing fresh oysters online is easy and doesn’t require any special preparation. At Taylor Shellfish Farms, each of our perishable seafood items — anything that isn’t tinned — are shipped with next-day delivery with dry ice or gel ice packs to ensure that your oysters, clams, and mussels stay fresh.
Born in Puget Sound, Taylor Shellfish Farms has provided our customers with great oysters since 1890. Now, we have farms all across the Pacific Northwest, from Hood Canal to Willapa Bay, with expert oyster farmers supplying fish markets across the world with delicious and sustainable shellfish.
