Quite apart from the excellent choices of cafeteria style dining inside the main building, there is also the seafood "ship" at the Lighthouse. Excellent fish and chips served with wooden utensils,and cardboard boxes. No styrofoam! It should have its own listing as a restaurant rather than just included under Masstown Market.

This is my favorite place to find local products. Maple products, vegetables, bread, meat and seafood pie, you can find almost anything you want in this market. They also have a small food court where ice cream is very famous.

If you are in the Truro area, then you might want to visit the Masstown market. It has it all. Fish and Chips, fresh deli, flower and bedding plant market, a collectibles gift shop, and a giant food food market. All in one location.

We always stop at the Masstown market going between Moncton and Halifax, it's a good stopping point and gives us time to stretch our legs, do whatever we need to do and always pick up some fresh baked goods. The date squares are always a good bet and there is always cheese on sale for 50% off or more so... More

Very taste fish and chips but lots of oil on it. The best are the fish tacos but I found them very few times. Juan

I saw Masstown Market featured in the 2015 Taste of Nova Scotia culinary adventure guide published by the tourism board (a good little guide to maybe 100 food prep and service businesses) and thought I would take a look. I certainly did not expect anything as big and busting as I found wedged between Hwy 2 and the Bay of... More

I was wary of stopping at this place (assumed it was a tourist trap) but we had been driving so long that I gave in. And am I EVER glad I did! This was a wonderful welcoming experience into Nova Scotia. There is so much to do here if you're with the family. We bought fresh wild blueberries from the... More

This place is certainly a gem. Delicious baked goods, Deli has homemade sandwiches, wraps, salads, Chilli, seafood chowder and the must try seafood pie! The new fish and chip boat and deck serve up the most delicious haddock and the deck is gorgeous on a sunny day. The Market also boasts a great gift shop with a large variety of... More

If you want fresh fish this is the place. Very good quantity and quality. Its called Catch of the Bay. It offers all your favorites of the sea. For example a one piece fish and chips has a whole haddock fillet in gluten free batter, lots fries, homemade coleslaw and tartar sauce. Prices are very reasonable.
