Tomales Bay Oyster Company

15479 Shoreline Hwy, Marshall, California, USA, 94940

The Basics

Tomales Bay Oyster Company is located 40 miles (65 kilometers) from San Francisco in the community of Marshall, just north of Point Reyes Station. Unlike neighboring oyster companies, Tomales Bay does not allow on-site picnicking or grilling; you simply buy your oysters and take them to a nearby beach or park to enjoy them. Some Marin County food tours include this as a stop, although many stop at Hog Island Oyster Company or Marshall Store.
