Hog Island Oyster Farm **OR** Tomales Bay Oyster Co?

There *have* to be some alternatives to Hog Island. We've been driving out to Tomales Bay for over 15 years every October for an "Oystoberfest". Back then, HI was a shack by the side of the road where you could buy fresh oysters and a knife. Peaceful, quiet and beautiful. Now, valet parking, live music, and fees for the use of picnic tables make it more like going to Disneyland. No thanks. Can anyone help us get away from the Hollywood crowd driving their Tesla's, and get back to good oysters? Thanks in advance for suggestions.
