Density and weight are prime indicators of quality.  Our oysters are hand selected for size, shape, and heft; only the best make it to market and wear the name Ruby Salts.

Cherrystone Creek lies on the lower Eastern Shore, where the Chesapeake meets the Atlantic.   This just-right mixture of seawater gives these oysters a flavor you won’t forget.

Ruby Salts are grown close to shore, kept off the bottom, and exposed daily to air and sunlight. The muscle clamps shut and stores seawater as its lifeline.  The result is routine exercise and a strong, clean, healthy oyster.

An adult oyster filters over 50 gallons of seawater/day. Ruby Salts are environmentally beneficial, sustainable, and healthy.   Six oysters exceed 100% of your RDA of Zinc, Vitamin B12, Omega-3 fatty acids, & raise levels of good cholesterol.
