Fall Food Festivals on Prince Edward Island

Published Date Author: , August 26th, 2012

A bucolic isle in Atlantic Canada, Prince Edward Island is renowned for its mussels and oysters and is called the tuna fishing capital of the world. With its red earth and gentle rolling hills, the province is also referred to as the “million-acre farm,” and its potatoes (a third of Canada’s production) and beef are much in demand.

As these islanders like to eat “straight from the farmer’s field and seafood still wiggling in the nets,” visitors will find PEI is fast becoming a serious food destination. They can choose among some 80 hands-on experiences where local food and produce become the “heroes,” such as tonging for oysters, harvesting Irish Moss or catch and release tuna fishing. To “live like islanders,” visitors can dig for clams, pick potatoes or catch and cook lobsters right on the boat.
