MOM’s Organic Market opens oyster farm

To assist in conservation efforts in the Chesapeake Bay — and offer sustainable, affordable seafood in stores — MOM’s Organic Market has started its own oyster farm off of Fleets Island, Va.

The retailer plans to sample and sell oysters at the grand opening of its first store in Washington Nov. 14-16, as well as at stores in Rockville, Md., and Alexandria, Va. Customers can also recycle oyster shells in-store thanks to the Oyster Recovery Partnership.

Stores will sell two dozen oysters for $14. MOM’s aims to make the mollusk more affordable.
