La Marea of the Sea is a family run business. You’ll find Rudy at the Monterey farmers market at MPC on Thursdays. Maria, his wife, and one or two of their lovely daughters, work at the Saturday Aptos farmers market at Cabrillo College.
La Marea of the Sea provides three varieties of oysters at our Monterey and Aptos Markets: Myagi, Shigoku and Kumamoto oysters. Each type of oyster has nuances that reflect the water, climate and nutrients of the region in which they are raised.
In addition, La Marea offers freshly prepared ceviche tostadas, shrimp tostadas, and an oyster bar of freshly shucked oysters on the half shell and a full complement of toppings including piquant hot sauces, cocktail sauce, horseradish and limes. “To go” containers are available. Soda and water are also available to accompany these tasty treats.
