Copps Island Oysters

Copps Island Oysters are from the highly acclaimed grounds off of Norwalk and Westport, Connecticut and are naturally sheltered by the Norwalk Islands. These are the oysters that made Blue Points famous. These oysters are grown and harvested by Norm Bloom & Son for over three generations and remains one of the best oysters coming out of the cold waters of Long Island Sound.
