East Dennis, Cape Cod Bay, MA
Hailing from Cape Cod, DAVENPORT is new to the team, a petite player and liked by long-time fans and newbies, too. His brine is as bright as his wit, and his salty sense of humor and dapper striped shell close the deal. A straight forward salt bomb: no head games here. Simply, charming.

Jamie Davenport started out in restaurants and carpentry before moving to Vancouver, Canada with his wife to pursue a career in filmmaking. Shortly thereafter, with the arrival of their first of three boys, they decided to move back to New England to be closer to family. Meanwhile, Jamie's father had started an oyster farm in East Dennis and gave him the opportunity to join in. Ten years later, Jamie still takes pride in producing environmentally sustainable, high-quality Davenport Oysters. He says that you can’t beat being surrounded by nature every day.
