The Local Oyster started as a one man traveling oyster bar popping up all over Baltimore. After shucking almost every local oyster available, Nick Schauman met Patrick Hudson, the owner of a fledgling oyster farm called True Chesapeake. The two quickly became friends and formed a partnership. They haven’t looked back since.

Together with their kick ass team, Nick and Patrick set up their oyster tents at parties and festivals all over Baltimore and beyond, having shucked for clients big and small. In 2015, the two decided to open their first brick and mortar called, you guessed it, The Local Oyster. The rest is soon to be History!
