Historical Uptown: After departing from the pier, stroll the sidewalks through Saint John’s historical uptown. Our guide will regale you with tales of local architecture and industry. Your experience will begin as all meals should – with a sweet treat! After that, enjoy a small tasting of seafood prepared in a way you may not expect.
Old City Market: You will then journey to the iconic Old City Market, with its original wrought-iron gates and renowned ceiling that is a shining example of the marine heritage built by shipbuilders. The City Market is alive with the sounds of busy clerks and shoppers, the aroma of fresh food, and colorful displays of produce, meats and seafood. While browsing the stalls, taste a sample of dulse, a deep-purple sea vegetable that is dried and eaten by the handful like popcorn.
Tasty Delights: Following your market visit, you’ll visit a locally owned award-winning pizzeria where you’ll indulge in a hand-stretched, wood-fired, all-time favorite pizza with local flair. Then make your way to Beavertails for a delicious, truly one-of-a-kind fresh artisanal pastry.
