DejaChew_Oysters1676

Virginia oysters pop up in markets and on menus near and far, but their tasty history goes back to the very First Landing of English settlers at Cape Henry [Virginia Beach] in 1607.

Throughout history, folks have lauded their availabity, size, and of course deliciousness, such as Thomas Glover, who, in his 1676 “An Account of Virginia” penned:

Here are plenty of oysters that they may load ships with them. At the mouth of Elizabeth River, when it is low water, they appear in rocks a foot above water.
