Fish and Seafood
Our seafood department offers a wide assortment of fresh local products (some seasonal). Living close to the ocean definitely has its benefits when you’re talking about seafood. We like to offer and promote fresh local seafood like cod, salmon, halibut, cod tongues, cod cheeks, and mussels. We carry seal flipper and loins year round and retail such dishes as flipper pie, flipper and gravy. There are also many exclusive seal merchandise in our Craft Shop located next to Bidgood’s Cove. We also offer salt fish items such as whole salted cod, salted cod steaks, salt cod bits, salt cod heads, salted cod cellos, salted turbot, salted cod cheeks and tongues. If you would rather a smoked taste we offer smoked salmon, smoked cod, smoke mackerel, smoked and corned capelin. Customers and especially children love visiting our lobster tank located inside the seafood department. The lobster tank is an open faced tank so customers are able to pick out the exact lobster they desire.
Local Meat and Game
Our local game products (moose, rabbit, and partridge) are also offered year round. We offer a unique selection consisting of fresh moose pie, fresh moose stew, fresh rabbit pie, fresh rabbit stew, and fresh cooked partridge.
We strive to only provide the freshest fruits and vegetables available. Where ever possible our produce is locally sourced and we’re very proud to champion Newfoundland farmers and food products. We do of course have to import some products because they don’t grow on our big island, but we’ve got the best distribution channels in place to make sure that banana travelling from down south gets here while its still at its freshest.
Our berries come from the many communities on the southern shore, Bonavista, and Labrador. We retail these berries in our store and also use them to make other products such as bake apple spread, blueberry spread, partridge berry spread and partridgeberry relish just to name a few.
