Our Purveyors

Hama Hama

Located on the eastern slopes of the Olympic Peninsula, Hama Hama is a family-run tree and oyster farm that has been in operation for over a century. The RPM Pearl  oysters are raised using sustainable and sensible harvesting methods that work in harmony with the natural tide. The purity of Hama Hama’s oysters is a testament to the clean, crisp waters of the Hood Canal, where their beds are located at the mouth of one of Washington State’s shortest, coldest, and least developed rivers.

RPM Pearl Oysters are served with Yuzu Granita to bring out the crisp flavors of this shellfish.

Day Boat Fresh

Sue Buxton owns and operates Day Boat Fresh on Deer Island, Maine, which specializes in selling local and responsibly caught seafood, including mussels, and crabmeat. Her seafood is used by some of the world’s best chefs and restaurants due to the freshness and sustainability.
