Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market
Open seven days a week, the Seaport Market is especially busy on Saturday mornings when locals and tourists arrive in throngs to stock up on local produce, fresh coffee, baked goods, and crafts. This two level eco-friendly building with a rooftop terrace is located directly on the waterfront, so you can enjoy your locally roasted coffee and freshly made crepe with a view. While the market is open throughout the week, the majority of vendors are only open on the weekends.

Historic Farmers’ Market
The city’s original market is located downtown in the Alexander Keith’s Brewery. The old stone building, complete with courtyards, is a beautiful spot to shop for local produce and treats. Open Saturdays from 7am-1pm, you’ll find everything from kombucha and pickled veggies, to freshly baked bread and artisanal crafts.

Alderney Landing Farmers’ Market
Head across the harbor to the Alderney Farmers’ Market, open Saturdays 8am-1pm and Sundays 11am-3pm. While still a hotspot for local foods, the Alderney market has a slightly slower pace than the Halifax markets and is great for those looking for a more relaxed market experience. If you’re feeling adventurous, hop on the ferry after you’re done browsing and head over to the Seaport Market on the other side of the harbour.
