Oysters grow slowly in Maine’s cold waters, and that gives them more time to soak up the flavors in their home waters. Differences in the food they eat as well as the temperature and salinity of the water produce a wide variety of flavor characteristics from farm to farm.

The Maine Oyster Festival celebrates oysters and the people who farm them from up and down the entire Maine coast!
