Oyster farmer Tony Berthelot doesn’t want foodies to be deprived at any time of the day or night—so he became one of several French oyster farmers to sell oysters out of what is essentially a 24-hour vending machine.

The dispenser, which is refrigerated and can be accessed via bank card, is constructed of glass panels so that potential customers can inspect the seafood before purchasing. It is stocked with a variety of types and sizes of oysters.

The vending machine is located on the island of Île de Ré, where Berthelot lives, and is open around the clock. Customers can buy 12 oysters for about $8.
