Opening of the Zeeland Oyster Season 2017 - Yerseke
Oyster season runs from September through April, so this is the time to enjoy this delicacy
The official opening of the season was celebrated in Yerseke. For three days, one could enjoy culinary unique products at the Oesterij in Yerseke.Yerseke is the center of oyster farming. Oysters are traded in Yerseke almost the whole year long.
Two types of oysters are raised in Zeeland: flat Zeeland oysters (Zeeuwse platte) and creuses (Zeeuwse bolle).
The difference between the two is that flat oysters take about five-six years before they can be eaten while the creuse is fully grown after just two-three years.
Enjoy your Oysters!
