Default Cheap Oysters?

Anyone know where you can buy oysters? When I lived in South Carolina my cousin had this guy on the coast that he would buy oysters from for all our oyster roasts. They were local smaller oysters and were way cheaper than you can get from the store. I guess the guy he bought them from was the guy that went out and harvested them? Anyway, they would be in big bags, like maybe 20-30 pounds. I love oysters but don't want to pay a dollar a piece for them in a restaurant. I just moved here last April so if there is a "local" oyster guy I would love to meet him. If not, what are the rules/regs. for harvesting them yourself. I have done that before in Georgia and South Carolina but not sure what the rules are here. Thanks for any help!

I typically just go to joe patti's and go to the checkout counter and ask for the 25lb box of apalachicola bay oysters. it's about $15.99 or so i think for the 25lb box. Have bought 15-20 boxes over past few years and just shuck them myself. Been happy with every box so far.

If you around Milton you can go to Pete Nichols Oyster stand. It is just north of the interstate on Avalon Blvd on the east side of the rd just before the McDonalds. That is probaly going to be the cheapest place as it is direct from the bay to the stand.

Exclamation south carolina oysters

murrells inlet oysters are going for around $26 a bushell. those apalachola oysters are $20 a bushell in murrells inlet. if your up this way try some inlet oysters,
you;ll never be satisifed with any others. and your right they are smaller.

tideline_two- Murrells Inlet is my stomping grounds! My family owns a house over on the Garden City side, about 3/4 down from Sam's Corner. I have been vacationing there since I was little and its the real "beach" to me and all my family. Russell's in Murrells inlet is my all time favorite seafood restaurants. Anyway, my cousin gets the oysters I was mentioning down in McClellanville but probably about the same thing. I love the saltiness of the little oysters from around there. Are you from Murrells Inlet?
