Recap: The Southern School of Oysters


The Southern School of Oysters


Oysters + wine + beer + a dreamy professor = The Southern School of Oysters, aka the only night class we’d ever be excited to sit through. We had a great time with all of our students and truly believe each and every one of you earned a gold star.




To our attendees:

The world is your oyster and hopefully after Professor Gary’s lesson you feel totally prepared to shuck it.
Now that you’re armed with knowledge, we hope that you take the time to show off a little at your next dinner party, and put those shucking knives to use! Until next time, class dismissed. 

*Extra Credit Opportunity: If you took any photos at the event, feel free to tag @Southernairemarket or #southernschoolofoysters

A Breath Of Fresh Aire

EBH Southernaire_IMG_0564

As downtown Nashville continues to grow – often at what feels like the speed of light – one constant remains: the lack of a full scale grocery store. There are alternatives, but for the most part restaurants dominate this territory.

While we feel your pain, we are here to offer you some reprieve. We aren’t promising to be your hallmark grocery replacement. In fact, quite the contrary.

Southernaire Market fills a unique void, not just for the downtown area, but for Nashville as a whole. Our market serves up fresh lunch items daily. Choose from soups, salads, sandwiches, and more.

Looking for last minute dinner items? We have got you covered: local craft beer, hand cut steaks, fresh seafood, charcuterie and an assortment of fresh local produce, not to mention our classic Southern sauces and spice rubs. We also host private events at the Southernaire Market.

But wait, there’s more! Southernaire market has an exclusive retail selection that helps to spotlight local and regional craft goods that inspire the Nashville spirit.

Our market serves a very specific, segmented aspect of the grocery shopping experience, combining a farmers market feel to the convenience of your corner bodega. When you come see us, you will be amazed at the diversity of products we offer in our Big Easy-meets-Big Apple, Music City Miracle.

All cliches aside, we are proud to offer a fresh new taste on shopping local in downtown Nashville. Stay tuned for news about more of our exciting developments at Southernaire Market!

School of Oysters


Join us on Wednesday, November 11th for The Southern School of Oysters.

Take a lesson from our Master Shucker Gary Pinson, while enjoying a combination of raw and grilled oysters with some ice cold Blue Point Beer.

Curious about Gary’s lesson plan? Here’s just a little of what he plans to cover – the difference between warm water and cold water oysters, taste profiles, importance of pairings, how to shuck, nutritional value, how to spot a bad oyster, and more.

Be sure to visit our Eventbrite page to purchase tickets in advance. You’ll be glad you did!
