“Busy spot with a great selection”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Masstown Market has everything you could want - fresh produce, gifts, a restaurant and a Nova Scotia Liquor Commission outlet. They offer beautiful plants from their greenhouse, delicious bakery items and now have a lighthouse restaurant than many people are raving about. Their parking lot is jammed packed every weekend during the spring and summer and they're even fairly busy in the winter. My only criticism is that their prices are high for most items, compared to those in other spots. But's a popular and thriving business which draws a lot of people to the area. It's in a great spot for those travelling through to New Brunswick and other areas to stop for a rest or meal.

This is an awesome market with local fresh produce, some of the best strawberries I've ever tasted, excellent bakery (love the brown bread) and great lunch deli, delicious chowder and sandwiches, especially the lobster rolls.
