Pricing for an event typically runs at $3 per oyster depending on how far we must travel to reach the event from our farm. If you want us to provide plates, cocktail forks, and napkins, we add 50 cents to the per oyster price. Sales tax is also added to the final price. Here is what that pricing includes:
– We bring the oysters in our refrigerated truck from our oyster farm on the York River.
– We provide a nice mignonette sauce, lemons, and cocktail sauce.
– We provide the raw bar station/table filled with ice, and will put the oysters on the display in the ice.
– We supply labor to set up, shuck during the event, and then break everything down and put it back on the truck.
