About The Jolly Oyster

Over 15 years ago, Mark Reynolds got together with Mark Venus, and the two friends planned the beginnings of a sustainable seafood business. They took two years searching the globe to find the ideal location to set up farms and finally settled on two spots in Baja California. The first farm was established in Laguna Manuela, followed by another in San Quintin.

In August 2011, The Jolly Oyster opened up shop on Ventura Beach with their Shuck Shack, which provides oysters and clams whole in the shell for you to shuck and cook yourself. They even provide instruction and guidance in a very relaxed atmosphere that brings you closer to your food. In February 2015, they delighted South Bay residents with the opening of their second location in Torrance. The Jolly Oyster Market will be open W-F: 11am-8pm and S-Su: 10am-8pm.
