Steamer clams are soft shelled clams with a sweet ocean flavor and are more tender than hard shell clams like cherrystones, or littlenecks. Steamer clams shells are very thin and easily broken, which is why they are called soft shells.

  • Our steamer clams are harvested along the New England coast and delivered live.
  • Steamer clam stocks aren't depleted or experiencing overfishing.
