September is coming soon – (although there’s no need to wait until there’s an ‘R’ in the month to eat Southern Maryland’s delicious aquaculture oysters!), and Governor Larry Hogan has proclaimed every Saturday in September as “Buy Maryland Seafood Days” – a great opportunity for Marylanders to support our regional seafood industry.
“The Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries provide some of the world’s best and most bountiful seafood, including blue crabs, rockfish, oysters and blue catfish,” said Governor Hogan. “Supporting Maryland’s sustainable seafood industry and related businesses by purchasing their products throughout the year is important to Maryland’s economic recovery.”
Check out the Southern Maryland Oyster Guide to find oyster producers, stores and local restaurants offering Southern Maryland oysters through September and year round!
