Wild Marionport Oysters

Wild Marionport oysters are one of the last truly wild oysters in our state. Many oysters that once had that "wild look", have since crossed with farmed oysters, losing the green, ribbed shells that their wild parents displayed so proudly (West Falmouth and Wild Onset immediately come to mind). Fun fact...this was the first oyster Pangea ever sold so it has a special place in our hearts!
