Aw Shucks!

We’re getting ready for another day at the New Amsterdam Market tomorrow. The weather is looking great and we’re all quite excited to share some beautiful oysters and mussels.

Oysters are the perfect complement to any Thanksgiving feast. Aside from oyster stuffing, you can incorporate oysters into your meal by simply shucking and plating them and offering a few condiments. For those of you who are new to oyster shucking, below is a video of how to shuck an oyster.

We’ll be selling a variety of oysters as well as professional shucking knives for those of you who would like to try at home.

Our menu for tomorrow includes the following:
Oysters ($1.25/shucked and $1.00/loose)
– Island Creek from Duxbury, MA
– Moon Shoal from Duxbury, MA
– Malpeque from P.E.I., Canada
– Blue Point from Oyster Bay, Long Island

Mussels ($6.00/two pound bag)
– farm-raised from P.E.I., Canada

For those of you who need some oyster inspiration for Thanksgiving, New York Magazine featured oysters three ways for their Thanksgiving special. Check it out here.

We hope you can make it and look forward to meeting some happy slurpers!
