See you in Septembe"R".

My oyster man @ Marché Président Wilson (near Metro Iena) is the same. He has his stand twice a week (Wed & Sat) during the season, but he will go back to his "oyster farm" (he's away form Jun to end of Aug.)

His specialité is "Royal". The size is a bit smaller than the other kind with the same number, but its taste is so much concentrated. It tastes like "ocean" (mineral and iodine). "Royal" needs longer time to grow. He says he keeps 3 months after oyster is grown up. It gives oysters "rest" and "maturity".

Buddy, see you in Septembe"R".

There's no more "R" in this month. Have oysters gone? No. You can now enjoy oysters through the year, but some artisanal vendors (producers) close their business during this period (with no "R"). They will be back in Septembe"R".
