Description: The Halifax Farmers' Market was created by Royal Proclamation in June of...
The Halifax Farmers' Market was created by Royal Proclamation in June of 1750, a year after the founding of Halifax. The Governor and Council designated a site for the Market - the present day Bank of Montreal building. For 50 years this flesh, meat or cattle market, as it was known, sold produce as well as livestock delivered from Acadian farms in the Annapolis Valley and from local farm production. In 1848 the City of Halifax was incorporated and the original City Charter conveyed the Country Market property to the city "for the public and common benefit and use of the City of Halifax according to the true interest and meaning of the original grant." The Market has operated in several locations across the city since its inception in 1750, but moved to the Halifax Seaport in 2010 where it is now known as the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market - the longest continuously running Market in North America and proudly hosting over 250 vendors! Halifax Seaport The Halifax Seaport is a vibrant arts and cultural district found at the south end of the Halifax waterfront. Extending from Piers 19 to 23, you will find artisans, retailers, cruise terminals, event facilities, cafes, galleries, offices, a museum, a university and the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market. This district has been redeveloped to showcase local talent and is now a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

This inside farmers market gives great opportunity to purchase many locally grown and produced items. The selection of nuts and pumpkin seeds we purchased were beautiful. Wide variety of goods available and no pushy sales people.

I grew up on Vancouver Island and this place makes me feel right at home. Organic produce, ethnic food, handmade gifts, beer, spirits, wine, coffee, butchers, and a whole lot more. Excellent way to spend a lazy weekend forenoon.

We had breakfast here every morning, as the food was great, and it was right behind the Westin Hotel. Also has an excellent selection of small local farm fruit and produce. Nice bakeries as well.

A great place to visit on an early Saturday morning.(or later). You will find an interesting mix of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods and handcrafts which are offered by the very people who produced them. Additionally there are many vendors preparing fresh food that you can eat as you walk around and enjoy the sights and engage in friendly... More

We spent a day in Halifax and decided to park at the Halifax Seaport. You could spend a day here easily. Walking the boardwalk is great with endless restaurants and shops. You can take a ferry to the other side for $2.50 and with a transfer it gives you 90 mins and you can easily take the ferry back on... More

Loved the energy in this place, full of so much things to sell and see! Wish I could have had more time there, oh well. I just wish that the ATMs would actually work...enjoyed the performers playing inside, added to the energy of the place. :)
