We visited here on two occasions and both on a Saturday when the farmer's market was on. Very busy with lots of interesting stalls. Well worth a mooch around. Nice to have a wander around on the front too. We caught the ferry across to Halifax and this was fantastic. The views across the harbour are stunning and at $2.50... More

The Saturday market is great, they have a Sunday market as well however I can't comment as I haven't been there on a Sunday. There is lots of variety and vendors helpful and outgoing. It is located in Dartmouth on the waterfront. The Mennonites are there in the summer and they have fabulous deserts and preserves. The Wooden Monkey restaurant... More

Been coming here since 2010, to date been 4 times. Stayed in and around Dartmouth and always came here either during the day or night, doesn`t matter its nice anytime of the day. During the day its peaceful and a nice walk. During the night you see a wonderful view of Halifax. It`s almost worth staying on the dartmouth side... More

The ferry terminal is a great way to get to and from Dartmouth and Halifax's downtown area. The weekend farmer's market is great; the vendors are incredibly friendly. The building holds a great library, restaurant, theatre, liquor store. Nearby pubs and hotels as well. The little boardwalk is quite cute, but not as large as other boardwalks. You'd be better...

The landing is a nice place to arrive from Halifax. On the weekends the farmers market is great. Continuing up to the canal to sullivan's pond and Lake Banook is a relaxing, with several beaches and great trails.

Visited Landing this afternoon with several displays on the main lobby. Very friendly people, clean area and nice photo display of Dartmouth.

Daughter loves the Farmers Market on the weekends. Visited several time and it does not disappoint. Fresh seasonal produce, cheese, meats, baked goods, foods to go, craft items, etc.... As a bonus you have a great view of the Halifax waterfront. If you have a little time, visit.

The last time i was at this place was when my folks lived in Eastern Passage in 2005 - so I really wanted to go back because they have a library in this building. Still just as nice as i remember.

We took the ferry over from Halifax and were disappointed in the Landing. Nothing besides the Wooden Monkey restaurant and a Liquor store open when we were there. After walking outside along the water, the path back inside was very unkempt. Weeds growing every where and not appealing at all. Would not bother to do this again. Take the ferry... More
