Don't shell out big bucks for the bivalve—here's where to get oysters for just a dollar apiece

1871 Oyster

Oysters may be aphrodisiacs, but we don't love shelling out a fortune for a dozen bivalves.

Plus, you can use the money you saved to splurge on lobster rolls. Here's where to get oysters for just around $1 a pop.
