California Oysters Taste YUM During Oyster Month

Published on: August 21, 2013


California is known for its fruits, its milk, dairy, grapes and nuts, but some forget that we have outrageous Pacific oysters, the most widely grown around the globe–YUM! Try them raw on the half shell with a squeeze of lemon, or grilled over wood –SO GOOD!

Hog Island Oyster Co. ( in Marshall is a great road stop and place to begin your love affair with this bivalve, grown & harvested on-location in Tomales Bay north of San Francisco. You can dine at the Hog Island Oyster Farm restaurant overlooking the bay, Hog Island Oyster Bars in San Francisco and Napa, and the Farmers’ Market in San Francisco. If you missed Oyster Day on August 5, you have 10 days remaining till Oyster Month is over. But when you love oysters, it’s never over!

Marshall is an unincorporated community in Marin County on the northeast shore of Tomales Bay 6 miles south of Tomales. The town is named after four brothers who began dairy-farming locally in 1850.
