About ApalachicolaApalachicola is a Hitchiti Indian word meaning “people on the other side.” Ninety percent of the state's oyster crop (10 percent of the nation's total) is cultivated in Apalachicola's more than 7,000 acres of oyster beds. In early November, the 2-day Florida Seafood Festival is held in Battery Park. Along with oyster-shucking contests, entertainment and seafood sampling, a blessing of the fleet also takes place.
