Labor Day marks the end of the big beach season on Cape Cod, and the beginning of the best oysters all year. Traditionally, oysters taste best when consumed in months ending in the letter "R", although an oyster lover like me finds them yummy year round.
Recently I had the opportunity to join the oyster farmers from Big Rock Oyster Company in Harwich at their oyster beds in Cape Cod Bay.
A special thanks to Oyster Redeployment Specialist Jim Ferry for the kind invitation.
Big Rock Oysters are sold in fish stores, supermarkets and restaurants all over the northeast, but if you're in Harwich you can buy them direct from the warehouse at 501 Depot Street in Harwich.
