Quonset Point oysters are deep-cupped 3”-3 ½” Atlantic oysters from Rhode Island.  Their firm meat has a salty start that isn’t too intense and a mild, sweet & creamy finish.  They’re quite popular amongst those who prefer their Atlantic oysters less briny.

Quonset Point oysters are a Virginica oyster variety grown in long-line suspended oyster cages that swing with the currents in the deep water of Narragansett Bay’s East Passage.  They grow plump & delicious as they filter the billions of microscopic plankton swept over them by the strong tides.

These oysters are stored in a high tech refrigerated flowing seawater system post-harvest that keeps them fresher, tastier, and alive longer.  While in this wet holding area, they naturally clean themselves of sand, bacteria and grit by filtering the clean seawater.
