The Woods Hole Historical Museum will hold its annual Oyster Talk and Tasting on Friday, August 26, 2022, from 5-7 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 of Falmouth Shellfish Cooperative, who will tell about their experience raising oysters in this area. The cooperative sells its oysters through the Coonamessett Farm.
After the talk, which will include a demonstration of shucking oysters, the audience will proceed to the tasting tables where the bivalves will be opened for them. Wines, specially chosen to pair with oysters, will be available, as well as several kinds of beer. Light snacks such as crackers and chips will be served as well.
The event is a fundraiser for the museum. Tickets are $45 for members; $55 for non-members.
