It isn’t a trip to the east coast without some fresh seafood, particularly lobster. Come to the market to stock up on fresh lobster or cooked lobster available at many of the stalls throughout the markets. Note: If you are buying lobster remember these three things: 1. bigger isn’t better 1lb is good, 2. want it to be firm like a water bottle and 3. fresh lobster tail curls when cooked.
You are probably asking yourself what the heck is dulse… yeah we thought the same thing. This seaweed is said to be the next Kale as it has health benefits such as the ability to improve vision, strengthen the immune system, improve the thyroid gland and more.

If you are visiting the Seaport Farmers’ Market you need to stop by the Seafoam Lavender stall. Seafoam Lavender Farm, which has 8,000 lavender plants, is located in Seafoam, Nova Scotia. If you can’t visit the farm Seafoam Lavender sells products daily at the market for you to enjoy.
