This package includes oysters from two of the most famed oyster regions in Massachusetts.  We've had plenty of customers who just can't decide. We get it.  We have the utmost respect for both towns, oysters, and growers, and we're excited to be able to let you try both!

You Get:

50 Aunt Dotty Oysters from Saquish Neck, MA

50 Wellfleet Oysters from Wellfleet, MA

Aunt Dotty Oysters:

Farmer:  Skip Bennett | Location: Saquish Neck, MA | Size: ~2.5"

The younger cousin of Island Creeks, are one of our most treasured creations. Small, savory and sweet - these are easy oysters to open and easy oysters to love. 

How they taste: Although they’re grown only a 20-minute boat ride away from the ICO’s and Row 34’s, Aunt Dottys have a vastly different flavor!  Intensely salty up front with a nori, seaweed-like brine, they mellow into a rich, nutty sweetness, almost like a bitter walnut.  Dotties have petite cups but are bursting with dense meats giving you a super toothsome bite.  

Wellfleet Oysters:

Farmer: Barbara & Clint Austin, Mike Devasto and a handful of other growers | Location: Wellfleet, MA | Size: ~2.5"

We select oysters from seven top-notch growers in the Wellfleet shellfish community, which includes over 100 growers, to provide the classic New England oyster experience.

How they taste: Wellfleets are well renowned for their intensely briny taste (think big blast of ocean water) and clean finish.  They also have a defined vegetal undertone from the bottom planting. Well-defined adductor muscles and plump, juicy meats make for a tender, chewy bite.
