Are Oysters Still in Season?

Contrary to myths that suggest otherwise, oysters can safely be eaten every month of the year. So, are oysters still in season even if the month doesn’t have an “r” in its name? Yes! May, June, July, and August are times when oysters can safely be eaten. Experts agree that if the oysters are grown in healthy waters and are handled properly, any time is the right time to enjoy oysters. City Fish Market has been a trusted source of year-round oysters for nearly a century!

The advent of refrigeration and the development and adoption of correct handling procedures have opened up summer for oyster consumption. For added peace of mind, we’ll mention that oysters are the most regulated product in the U.S.
