A true glimpse of the authentic Newport of yesteryear, the Aquidneck Lobster Company at the end of Bowen’s Wharf is a lot more than just crab legs and crustaceans. Don’t let the working loading dock entrance fool you; visitors are welcome to roam around the bubbling lobster tanks as longshoremen in their signature vivid orange Grundens unload, weigh, submerge and ice the morning catch. Further along in the wholesale seafood market you’ll find a trio of shops: Alexander Nesbitt Photography, Designer Jewelry and the Hurricane Hut Café. Nesbitt, an award-winning documentary and fine art photographer, showcases and sells images from around the world; price points vary as shoppers can select matted only to framed work. Designer Jewelry is chock full of everything from bargain bling to artisan pieces as well as accessories and handbags. An outdoor deck, one of the hidden gems of the waterfront, welcomes visitors to take a seat, relax and take in bustling Newport Harbor. Savor soft serve ice cream as the fishing boats cruise in and out of port while plotting your next lobster bake. Note: employees at the market are happy to pack your lobsters in ice for your trip home, but accept cash only.
