Rappahannock Oyster Company

Top choice in Virginia

This influencer in the oyster world was established in 1899. It harvests more than 180,000 oysters each week, many of which are shipped to restaurants across the USA. The company still has a mom-and-pop-shop feel; walk out on the dock to see the nursery, where baby oysters are given the ideal temps to grow, and taste them in the on-site Merroir Room.
