The seasonal Native oyster (ostrea edulis) is native to North-West Europe. The shell is fairly flat and almost round in shape, and the meat a delicate and beautiful taste. The Mersea Native was recently awarded Presidia status by the Slow Food movement. This award aims to protect the Native through sustainable farming, and care for the local environment, highlighting this oyster’s exemplary quality.
All our Mersea oysters are purified in seawater from the River Blackwater meaning they retain the beautifully unique flavour associated with this area. You can mail order and buy these incredible Mersea oysters, delivered straight to your door, or choose to pick them up for free from our stand at the world famous Borough Market.
