There are numerous local vendors offering fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and dairy. You can also purchase prepared foods to eat and drink and sit in several eating areas and enjoy some local music. You will find lots of local artisans selling jewellery, art, wood crafts,...More

We ordered lobster rolls and it did not wow us. they were ok but not worth 18 dollars for just ok. maybe it was an off day. I think they are better options locally.

Looking for some place different for breakfast? I highly recommend Wholly Crepe in the Seaport Market. The 20 minute wait for my crepe was a testimony to its popularity on a Saturday morning! Well worth the wait though. I had a ham and cheese crepe....More

Wonderful market with typical fresh vegetables, meats, cheeses, breakfast offerings, live music and artisans. A lot of the vendors are still cash only so hit your ATM before arriving. There are private label ATMs if cash is needed with a surcharge of $1.75. Stadium style...More

They open early with people queuing at 6.30 am - opens 7 am. There is a large car park near the Cunard centre Pier 23. We arrived by ship so parking wasn't an issue.

There are numerous spots to grab a bite..... but the best spot to eat is up on the roof top.... if it isn't too windy.... or on the steps where you can watch everyone milling around the vendors.
