James River OystersJames River Oysters are farmed on the James River in Virginia, just upstream from Chesapeake Bay. Since the water where these oysters are harvested is less saline than in the bay, they are not as salty as sea-caught oysters and are milder and sweeter in taste. Their texture is plump, and they’re a great oyster for stuffing or baking. Alternatively, grill them with butter, steam them over scented water, or eat them raw straight out of the shell. James River Oysters have been processed in an extensive facility built for cleanliness and masterful handling. You can buy raw oysters from Gourmet Food Store with the confidence they’ll be delivered promptly and will maintain their freshness all the way to your doorstep. Order oysters online with ease!
