As exclusive distributors, we are proud to carry an oyster that is pristine and beautiful both inside and out. Grown by Five Star Shellfish, Summerside Oysters are plump, clean, and elegant. They have great shuckability and a really nice finish. These are one of our favorite oysters here at Pangea. They're truly superb.

the Grower

We've got over a hundred years of experience between all the boys here. There are three owners: myself and my two brothers. We've been in business for over 10 years now and we love working together. Our father was a fisherman all his life. He loved oysters, lobsters, and the sea since he was a boy. We inherited that from our father.

It’s a family owned business. My two sons work here, my brother’s two sons work here, we all work together as family. We enjoy working. We enjoy each other’s company. And, we hope you enjoy Five Star oysters because they're top of the line - some of the best tasting oysters in the world!
