We currently work with wholesalers across the country to sell our mussels to restaurants and seafood markets. We do not currently sell our mussels direct to consumers via e-commerce but they are available for purchase at local markets & to enjoy at local restaurants.
We are constantly brainstorming and innovating new ways for customers to enjoy our mussels! Please stay tuned for new product offerings soon.
