Want a free taste of the ocean without leaving West Michigan? Then you're in luck!

The Fish Monger's Wife in Muskegon is hosting an oyster and smoked fish tasting Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Oysters are slurped and loved because they taste like the waters where they are grown.

During the event, you can taste both east and west coast varieties: Bluepoints, Salt Nugget, Raspberry Point, Caraquet and Old 1871.

Samples of smoked fish will be available, too.

Topping off the afternoon is a drawing for a holiday oyster basket ($60 value) and a smoked salmon party platter ($50 value).
