Farmers Market Foraging -Village Bay Oysters

 Out on a Sunday morning forage I bagged a box of Village Bay oysters. A cultivated product from New Brunswick the oysters came boxed by the dozen and were on sale today for .75each or nine dollars(CDN) for a dozen.

 Loaded with zinck and selenium and a good source of O3 fatty acids they are definitely "man" food supplying us fellas with  lots of essential minerals and vitamins.

 "Excellent source of : protein, vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, iron, copper, magnesium and phosphorus ;
Low in saturated fat ;Very good soure of Alpha Omega-3 fatty acids..."

 Did I say they were delicious to boot? Possessing a delicate flavor the oysters were the epitomy of fresh local seafood.I am at a loss to explain the flavor other than saying they taste like a salty ocean breeze.Definitely gonna add them to my staples list and will become another foraging day "must" buy.

Hello Jeorge,

Could you let me know where you got these oysters from? is there a vender at the Farmer's market that sells them?
