What is the season for clams?
Also to know is, is there a season for clams?
The Season for Clams. Just like tomatoes in the summer or pumpkins in the fall, clams have seasons when they are bountiful and in-demand. Most of the time, particularly in the spring and summer, when clams are "in season," we are able to get clams to Bob's that come only from Maine and Massachusetts.
Also, what is the season for mussels? Peak season for fresh mussels is October to March. You can buy mussels in their shells year-round from the chiller cabinet, or, ready shelled versions come frozen, smoked and bottled in brine or vinegar.
Similarly one may ask, what months is it safe to eat clams?
Common lore states that we should only be eating shellfish, especially oysters, in months with the letter “R.” So we can help ourselves to all the oysters, mussels, and clams we can eat from September through April, but put the brakes on come May.
