Want oysters for Christmas? ORDER EARLY!! That's all I can say.
First batch of oysters for the Christmas Season will be in store Saturday, Dec. 17th! Thanksgiving oyster orders must be in by Saturday Dec. 24th. We will have spares, that will go first-come, first-serve.
Floyd's prides ourselves in having the nicest, freshest, juiciest Gulf of Mexico shell and shucked oysters in the South. Floyd's has sold top quality Nelson's brand oysters from Bon Secour Fisheries in Alabama and other sources for over 35 years. All our oysters are safe and certified and come from licensed producers in AL, LA and TX. They come with tags that show when and where they came out of the water and we keep these health tags on file for 90 days by law.
Our oysters are NEVER frozen and NEVER imported.
Larry is our in-house oyster Quality Control Monitor, he checks each batch that comes in for juiciness, flavor and quality. (Quit eating all the oysters, Larry, leave us some to sell, darn it!) Larry also gives FREE oyster shucking (opening a shell oyster) instructions if you need to learn how.
We keep fresh oysters year round, so don't believe that silly Old Wive's Tale about "R" months. That is soo 100 years ago and doesn't apply to today. Peak time to get the BEST oysters is September thru June, when the Gulf waters are cooler and the oysters are happier.
WHERE THEY COME FROM
We get our fresh oysters from Louisiana, Texas and Alabama.
WHEN WE GET THEM
Shipments come in two times per week: Wednesdays and Fridays.
WHAT WE GET
We get fresh oysters in the shell by the box.
We get fresh shucked oysters in their own juice in gallon containers.
HOW WE SELL THEM
We sell shucked oysters by the half pint, pint, quart, half gallon or gallon. We sell shell oysters by the single oyster, dozen or by the full box. Boxes weigh 35 pounds and contain between 6 and 9 dozen oysters in the shell, depending on their size. Boxes are filled by weight, not number. Boxes are filled down on the Gulf and shipped to us.
HOW TO ORDER OYSTERS
If you want fresh oysters on Wednesday or Thursday, you must order by 2 PM on Tuesday. If you want fresh oysters on Friday or Saturday, you must order by 2 PM on Thursday. Please order in advance to be guaranteed to have oysters for your weekend parties. We keep extra fresh oysters on hand that we sell first come, first serve, but keep in mind, they come from the Gulf and have to be brought in 2 times per week, so when they're gone, they're gone!
Please call Lisa or Larry at the shop for current prices, as they change with the market. We can give you good prices on quantities over single dozens, so call us and ask.
