Whole Foods Offers Alabama-raised Point Aux Pins Oysters
Austin, Texas-based Whole Foods Market’s South region locations now offer boutique, farm-raised Point aux Pins oysters.
The premium oysters -- produced at Steve and Dema Crockett’s family farm in Bayou La Batre, Ala., and processed at Bon Secour Fisheries – are available in 26 stores in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
"Whole Foods Market in Mountain Brook, Alabama gave us an early gift for the holiday season by introducing us to Alabama farm-raised Point aux Pins oysters,” said Mark Decker, seafood coordinator for Whole Foods Market South region. “Personally, this is the best Gulf oyster I've ever eaten and they are rapidly gaining in popularity within the oyster connoisseur community.”
Point aux Pins oysters, which are grown using a special technique designed to give them a more appealing shape and make them a more consistent product, will be priced at $1.29 each, with a special price of 99 cents through Christmas.
As a leading natural and organic food retailer, Whole Foods Market employs more than 73,000 Team Members and ranks as one of Fortune magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" in America.
