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

This was the first time we visited the Farmer's Market and we were impressed by the selection of food, drink, and other products which are available. It was encouraging to see so many local products being produced by local entrepreneurs. Well-worth a visit.

Cool local scene- plenty of actual farmer's market stuff and with the holidays approaching lots of crafty cool gifts. If you are in town its absolutely worth a stroll and a coffee. Found a great tea shop, as well as some cool local rum.

This is a semi-regular weekend venue that we always enjoy visiting, especially for the varied prepared food available for consumption on site. The variety is endless and eclectic but our favorite relates to the South Asian fare. Absolutely delicious and lots of vendors onsite who...More

Apparently only open when ships are in this is the place to get some great local produce. After trying pretty much everything, I discovered a great hot sauce stand that did an amazing Smoked Bacon Jalapeno sauce. So good I had to get two bottles!

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.
