Wellfleet Harbor, Cape Cod   Map it!

The most famous of all New England oysters, Wellfleets are farmed in the protected intertidal flats of Wellfleet Harbor. The Cape’s lack of freshwater guarantees a profoundly briny flavor in its oysters.

    These are awesome and I’m eating them out of FL. We have a great local seafood shop that brings all varieties in, Sammie’s in St Pete.

    Ordered a plateful last night at a local restaurant that always has a good oyster menu. They looked like Wellfleets but were disappointing: uncharacteristically small and not very briny at all. A mix-up in the kitchen or a quality control problem?

    Had these in both Miami and Boston in the course of one week – they do travel well and even early season this is a dependable choice. Great balance of brine and mineral.

    Like all oysters these vary quite a bit but when they are on they are one of my top picks. Most east coast oysters have a briny taste of the sea that varies in the level of salt and nothing much more but Wellfleet’s can have a lot of flavor in addition to salt, and when they do they are exceptional.

    I grew up eating Wellfleet oysters. Always among the best ever.

    Wellfleat, I can enjoy its good texture because of mild fatty body of flesh.
