I live in Dartmouth and if a tourist needed some fresh food he might go there or take the ferry to Halifax and enjoy the much larger Farmer's market along the waterfront.On a few occasions there might be an ARTISTIC event Cruise Ships dock on the Halifax side.

We are so fortunate to have this facility in our great city. The Farmers Market is one of the best around, the theatre is superb and the children's activities cannot be beat.

Great place to buy local produce and baked goods. Many other vendors there on Saturday. The produce is always fresh, the baked goods are home made. The crafts are all made by local people. Parking is usually busy but not hard to find. Get there early on Saturday fro best selection.

Alderney Landing is the Dartmouth water front, right across the harbour from Halifax. Many functions are held there throughout the year, especially the summer months.

Plenty of parking, a few restaurants, but little to encourage you to stay Dartmouth side and not pop across to Halifax. Best place to park if staying on the Dartmouth side and visiting Halifax.

Some great views of Halifax on the waterfront from Alderney Landing. There is a Word Peace Pavilion located there with chunks of the Great Wall of China and the Berlin Wall inside a pyramid shaped outdoor museum ! A must see!! Great location and lots of lawn space to have a picnic.
