Our Oysters

Our oysters are the perfect union of careful craftsmanship and sustainable production. Over twenty hands touch every oyster before they are distributed.

Stella Mar’s aim is to redefine the Connecticut oyster through our ecology, our process, and the quality of our product. We are breaking the mold, one oyster consumer at a time.
