Showcasing THREE ULTRA PREMIUM OYSTER VARIETIES  

NORTH CAROLINA: Atlantic Emerald Oysters™These green-gilled oysters are as rare and exotic as an oyster gets. This is the vanguard of American Oyster Culture & Cuisine, but it is NOT new in France where they cultivate special algae ponds that turns their oysters green. These Fin de Claire oysters have been the most prized oysters in France for 400 years. 

FROM NEW YORK: Empire Oysters -  These Wild, Scuba Foraged Oysters will be right at home in the gardens. Meet the guy behind the brand and the film Long Island Oyster Divers. Check out the film about Empire Oysters HERE

FROM VIRGINIA: Tidewater Oysters - These immaculately cultured oysters are a Chesapeake Classic. Grown in waters with lower salt content this is a “Sweeter” oyster than the others.
