   Exploring Prince Edward Island's Unbeatable Oyster Scene

On a rainy afternoon on Prince Edward Island, it’s business as usual at the North Rustico harbor. Fishing boats sway back and forth in the water, parked in front of multicolored shacks and lobster cages. At Doiron Fisheries, fresh oysters, lobsters, and fish are being sold for the day. Just next to the North Rustico Lighthouse, built in 1876, you’ll find the home of Captain Emard Court, a retired fisherman turned local celebrity with a long, white, wispy beard, whom tourists love to snap photos of while he sits on his veranda. The picturesque setting represents what makes this Canadian province unique: It’s both nostalgic and simple, blessed with a booming shellfish industry.

If you’re an oyster enthusiast, chances are you’ve seen a Prince Edward Island oyster on a few menus. Dubbed Canada’s food island, PEI is known for its red sand beaches and historic lighthouses, but it’s also one of the country’s biggest oyster producers, exporting to major markets across North America and Asia. Visit the island itself, though, and you’ll find a number of unique oyster bars and restaurants of its own, from seaside patios in the summer to trendy hot spots in downtown Charlottetown, its capital city.
