James River Oysters

James River Oysters are harvested from Virginia’s James River, just upstream from Chesapeake Bay. Here the water is less salty than in the sea, so these oysters have a milder, less briny flavor than most sea-caught oysters. They are also blessed with a slight sweetness that makes them a delight to eat raw out of the shell. With a plump, full-bodied texture, they’re great for stuffing and baking, but you can also smother them in butter and grill them, steam them over scented water, or fry them to give them a crispy, delicious crust. These are truly among the best raw oysters you’ll find.

James River Oysters have been prepared in an extensive facility built with an emphasis on cleanliness and careful handling. Buy oyster online with Gourmet Food World and we’ll deliver them fresh to your doorstep, hassle-free.

Q: Do I freeze them until I use them.?

These oysters are fresh and alive. We recommend using them as soon as possible once you receive them. They can be stored refrigerated for 1-2 days.

They can be frozen but we only recommend to freeze them if you are familiar with oysters and with the process of freezing them. If you prefer to freeze them you will have to cook the oysters, they cannot be used raw anymore.
