Hama Hama Oysters

Regular price $ 65.00

Hama Hama Oysters grow the old fashioned way, directly on the gravel where our namesake river flows out of the Olympic Mountains and into Hood Canal. Exposed twice a day by the outgoing tide, they're slow-growing, beach-hardened, and known for a clean, crisp flavor with a sweet finish that evokes melon rind or cucumber. Highly seasonal, Hama Hama tend to be sweeter in the spring and brinier in the fall and winter.

“It’s a frontier oyster, its gnarly, gray-green shell mirroring the misty fir forests that shroud the river all the way down to Hood Canal.” Rowan Jacobsen, Culture + Travel

Like Old Times

The Oysters (3 dozen) arrived on schedule and very cold. Out of 36 only one had died, the rest were perfect. The quality was exceptional with great flavor. They lasted in that condition (dwindling in number each day) until the last on Saturday. Even the very last one was excellent. I am much more than pleased with them. I first went to Hama Hama in the 1990's and have been there many times since, but haven't had the opportunity for the last 10 years. It was a great pleasure to find that they are shipping Oysters. I will definitely order more.

A new oyster experience!

I've gotta say, selecting my oysters and having them shipped to my doorstep in 2 days feels so luxurious! These oysters were intended to celebrate a birthday and we did just that, shipment came on time as promised, oysters were fresh, and we enjoyed them with mignonette and lemon. Chef's kiss! I can't wait for my next order.

Oysters shipped to AZ

We stopped by the Hama Hama Oyster facility when I was in Washington a couple of years ago with my sister and we just loved them. I since had them shipped to my home in California a few times and they were perfect every time.
We were throwing a party for her eightieth birthday in Phoenix and I was a bit leery of having oysters shipped to the warm climate of Arizona. Glad to say that my fears were unfounded as the hama hamas and even the more delicate Olympic oysters arrived in perfect shape.
This was the first time I had tried the Olympics and once I got over their size (or lack thereof) they were a very tasty tidbit.
Kudos to your packing and shipping departments they know what they are doing.

What a treat!

Ordered 3 dozen for the holiday season. Have ordered from a few different places here in WA and eat oysters quite frequently here. These oysters were something very special. So delicate, and what a lovely flavor. Very mild, clean, and really delicious. We will be ordering more and recommending these to more people. Also splurged and ordered 5 pounds of clams. Also amazing. Thank you so much!

Delicious, but difficult

The oysters were fresh and delicious, but I took a star off because they were difficult to open, and the shells were crumbly. I've been getting oysters regularly with my monthly Oysters & Friends box, and these were the first ones that were crumbly. There were pieces of shells everywhere!
