In New Brunswick the Bay of Fundy tides are the biggest in the world and the seascapes are spectacular. Did you know that St. John's City Market is a Canadian National Heritage site and one of Canada's oldest farmers market? Where, in season, locals and visitors scoop up fresh fiddleheads to steam and serve with melted butter; the perfect accompaniment to fresh caught New Brunswick lobster or salmon. Seafood (oysters, clams and scallop) and the sea are part of everyday life for New Brunswickers.
Here Irish and Scottish roots run deep. And the Acadian influence reflect NB's strong French culture and food. A drive along the Acadian Coast from Cambellton to Shediac across the world famous Miramachi Valley and the river of the same name will make your New Brunswick experience complete. Seafood is on the menu everywhere and restaurant chefs in major centres like Moncton, St. John and Fredericton know how to satisfy your palate with authentic east coast cuisine and local versions of your favorites. In smaller coastal villages you'll find memorable local delicacies like Fricot a la Poule (chicken cooked with summer savory, potato and dumplings) unique to this region. Food and fun they go together in New Brunswick.
