SEATTLE: Taylor Shellfish Farms, a fifth generation, family-owned shellfish farming company is having a one-year birthday celebration July 11 from 1:00 to 7:00 pm for their Capitol Hill retail store and oyster bar at 1521 Melrose Ave. With a variety of live shellfish delivered almost daily, Taylor brings the farm to the city.
