We stopped at this market out of convenience while driving between Saint John and Halifax. It's a great place to stretch your legs and give your furry friends a break from the drive too. The market actually has an outdoor kennel where you can leave your dogs while you shop or grab a bite to eat. My husband and I... More

We have been stopping to this place for over twenty years now. We have seen them add and add products and services over time. From a simple ice cream cone, to a meal, to a full grocery experience, they offer it all. The staff is well trained and the quality is on point. A great break on any road trip.... More

This "market" is a grocery store, a gift shop, a deli and a cafeteria. It's easy to access off the TransCanada making it handy to buy something to eat in the car, pick up some groceries for when we get home, or have a lunch. The quality of the produce is very good. We usually leave with something interesting to... More

This is a great spot. We go at least once a month. They offer everything from flowers, clothing, gifts items, fresh produce, best homemade bread and donuts, prepared take home meals, tasty lunches and ice cream. Love this place.

To think this all started from a farmer selling his strawberries by the roadside. The market has become a bit of a destination. It is busy year round. Unfortunately for my waistline I find it impossible to be in the area without getting an ice cream cone. They are sometimes so busy just with ice cream that they have three... More

The fish n chips are fabulous, as are the scallops at the fish shack. A nice addition are the sodas in glass bottles...something you don't see much these days. Be warned that the amount of food is huge! For us a kids size fish n chips is plenty. For our family gluten free is a necessity and all the fish... More

Masstown Market is always on our list for pit stops when heading up this way. They have a large bakery, grocery, and dairy (ice cream, cheese) sections in their main building, as well as country-esque gifts. The lighthouse building is great for photo and there's a gas station with a small Tim's as well.

Lovely Farmers Type Market with outdoor Fish and Chips (and other seafood clams, scallops, lobster etc) Kennels for dogs and fresh fruit and vegetables sold here too. A wonderful selection of ice cream at a very good price. If you are passing you will find something to your taste I'm sure. One of my favourites that I go to regularly.

We are very pleased you stop by often and appreciate your business. Thank you for mentioning the kennels, we sure don't want people leaving pets in hot vehicles. More
