Fish, especially lobster comes to mind, but we have many kinds of seafood. There are more and more restaurants featuring fresh and local food. Look for things such as strawberries, apples and blueberries in season and maple syrup. There are producers making great smoked salmon. Others do specialty pork products and sausages.

There are two cheese producers in the province. If you like blue cheese then try to find some Dragon's Breath. It is at Masstown market and the Seaport Market in Halifax and at the producer: http://www.denhoek.ca/

This website will give you some idea. http://tasteofnovascotia.com/

I just picked up this booklet yesterday and it has producers and restaurants from all over the province. You can order a copy here: tasteofnovascotia.com/2014-taste-of-nova-sco…

Fish chowder is found in many restaurants and it can vary from place to place: tasteofnovascotia.com/the-chowder-trail/

All the formal writings and publicity for local Nova Scotia foods will focus on the amazing seafood (the lobster, scallops and haddock are so good!), the delicious fruits and veggies (check out the farm markets for local products in season so many wonderful options!), the wine and craft beer, the artisan foods such as locally made cheese, jellies, etc these are all absolutely wonderful fantastic choices and you should try them because they are amazing but.....if you want to eat like a Nova Scotian on the other end of the spectrum....such as on a Saturday night after having a few beers with some friends at the local pub then you'll want to try local Nova Scotia favorites of deep fried pepperoni dipped in honey mustard, donairs, and garlic fingers with donair sauce for dipping. I grew up in Nova Scotia and now live on the prairies and these local Nova Scotia greasy treats don't exist out here and many Nova Scotians now living elsewhere (including myself) when they return home to NS have these on their must eat wish list.

I would also add dulse (dried seaweed), moon mist ice cream, and Nova Scotia brown bread (made with molasses and so much better than the brown bread out here on the prairies), and hodge podge (local new potatoes, beans, carrots etc cooked in a pot together and then you add cream/milk and butter to it and warm it up) as some of my most missed NS foods in addition to the fantastic seafood and locally grown fruits and veggies.
