Fish and shellfish are particularly delicious from around the island, look out for and try, clams, oysters, scallops (November – March) , sea bass, flounder, striped bass, littlenecks, lobsters and crab.

Cranberries are grown on the island and so will often make an appearance in dishes like ice-cream and cakes, you can also visit the cranberry bogs  especially informative around harvest time which is generally in October.

 Don’t leave the island without visiting the juice bar  and sampling the ice cream served in their perfect home made cones. 

Lots of restaurants serve salad, fruits and vegetables from Barletts Farm and Pumpkin Pond Farm , both are worth looking out for and eating as they are fresh, seasonal and delicious.
