The market is a great place to visit on the weekend. Check their website for times of operation . Lots of local food and beverage products and local crafts. Have lunch there. It's fun!

Love this landing, they have multiple shops inside, a liquor store & a really good seafood restaurant too. Also they offer a market on Saturday & Sundays which is really good too.

I recently have occaision to be in Alderny Landing on Saturday mornings and have really enjoyed walking through the market, getting a coffee, a breakfast or lunch treat, filling my growler or buying something from the variety of stalls. I am so glad I get to experience this little slice of culture, particularly in the winter

I visited the Market the last Saturday in November, and found it bustling with activity. There was so much to smell, taste, see and enjoy. I purchased food from the bakers and found a few bargains. Some vendors over-price, but there is lots to choose. There is also lots of free parking, but be sure to arrive early. Upstairs is... More

I called ticket pro to book the ticket and they don't book the accessible tickets. Ticket pro gave me the box office number which is just a recording to call ticket... More

Started at Alderney Landing Market early Sat morning and then explored the shops close by. We went a short distance up Octerloney Street to Christ Church on Dundas St and discovered Dartmouth Makers'Winter Market. It was one of the nicest craft displays I have seen and bought several unique items. Highly recommend this next year. From there we went to... More

Right on the Dartmouth waterfront, this place is more than just a ferry terminal. There is library, a couple of restaurants, and a farmer's market on weekends. Plus the grounds make a lovely spot to just hang out and watch the water.

I really enjoy taking a stroll through the market on Saturdays. Lots of Artisans, local food Vendors and more. This is the place to be on the week end. The Landing has picnic tables outside to sit and enjoy the view. It is easy for visitors from Halifax to get on, see the harbour and enjoy the other side. There... More
