Union Market - New Year's illustration - champagne, confetti and caviar

The last meal you eat on New Year’s Eve will be the flavor you bring into the next year, so make it extra-delicious! Champagne or something bubbly is a must, along with fresh oysters and caviar—our favorite way to ring in the new year.

Union Market’s seafood counter has an array of seasonal oysters to choose from, including local East Coast varieties like Montauk Pearls, as well as West Coast oysters like Kusshi and Kumamoto, all responsibly sourced and fully traceable. Enjoy them on the half-shell with a squeeze of lemon or mignonette—or for an indulgent alternative, try our recipe for roasted oysters with a tarragon beurre noisette.

We’ll also have a variety of sustainable caviar on hand to help you celebrate in style. If really want to indulge this New Year’s Eve, be sure to try our finest Asian Premier caviar on blinis with a dollop crème fraîche. Remember, caviar is best served cold with a non-metallic spoon (we’ll have mother-of-pearl spoons available should you need one!), and for more ways to enjoy caviar, check out our serving suggestions and storage tips.

Here’s to a happy and healthy New Year!
