To get in the proper frame of mind, oysters were consumed as a post snow-shoveling treat, just hours prior to an early a.m. escape from snow-encased Providence. The oysters were from Seapowet Shellfish in Tiverton, (www.farmfresh.org/food/farm.php?farm=2062 ); pictured here is the vendor, Chris Clarendon, at the Wintertime Farmers' Market in Pawtucket. His silky oysters are grown under a dock in the Sakonnet River and are sold through local restaurants, fish and farmers' markets as well as Whole Foods. You can contact him at 401-816-0791 or email@example.com
Can't be more local unless under your own dock.
