Our fresh live clams are the 'Palourde' variety - also known as Carpet Shell Clams and come direct from Poole Harbour in Dorset. Clams are available all year round but are at their best in the colder months, so are currently in season. Clams offer a real taste of the sea with their fresh, salty aroma.




How many clams should you buy?

It really depends how hungry you are and what you're cooking, but a typical Spaghetti Vongole for 4 people requires 1kg of clams, whereas this New England Clam Chowder for 4-6 people requires 2kg.


Please note: if choosing the weekly or monthly price options, you cannot purchase other products at the same time. Please order other items separately afterwards, and we'll bring everything together.


Allergy advice: Molluscs (100%)


*Live shellfish experience water loss once packed as their shells open - this means weights will vary

  • Our clams are from The Poole Harbour Clam & Cockle Fishery in Dorset which is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Poole Bay is the second largest natural harbour in the world and the largest harvest area for Palourde clams in the UK. More details

  • Live shellfish (without shells removed) should be stored in open containers in the fridge, loosely covered with clean, damp paper towels or cloths to prevent them from drying out. The optimum storage temperature is 4-8°C. Temperatures of 1°C or lower (especially freezing temperatures less than 0°C) can kill shellfish.


    Do not store shellfish:

    In airtight containers (boxes or bags) because they need to breathe

    In water or directly on ice since the fresh water may drown them



    Discard mussels, oysters, clams or any other live shellfish if their shells crack or break

    Discard any shellfish if the shells are open and do not close when you tap them - live shellfish will "clam up" if their shells are tapped
