Annual Oyster Talk and Tasting 2018

Woods Hole Historical Museum will hold its annual Oyster Talk and Tasting on Friday, August 24, from 5 to 7 PM on the museum grounds at 579 Woods Hole Road.
The first part of the evening will be a talk by local oyster growers Pete Chase, Eric Matzen and Mary Murphy explaining how oysters are grown in this area and the results from the past year. Pete could be considered one of the pioneers of modern oyster aquaculture in Falmouth, as he established his oyster growing operation in Gansett Cove. Now there are a host of people growing oysters in Falmouth, stretching from Waquoit to Megansett. Pete, Mary and Eric are part of a cooperative, Sippewissett Oysters, which sells its oysters through Coonamessett Farm.
Tickets are $40. This event is for museum members only but for only $30, non-members can join the museum and enjoy benefits of museum membership for the year.
To get tickets, either call the museum at 508-548-7270 or stop by 579 Woods Hole Road. For more information, email
