To All Oysters

Wild Onset Oyster

Onset, MA
One of our favorites here at Pangea, Wild Onsets are beautifully green and perfectly briny. They have strong, hearty shells that rarely shatter when shucked. Because they are wild and only picked at low tide, they are a special treat and an oyster to treasure!
