“Best cinnamon buns”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Masstown is a must stop between Truro and Parrsboro! There is a wide variety of food, local crafts, a great garden center, and on a lovely day you can enjoy fish and chips by the light house. But my husband;s favourite is the cinnamon buns!

“home cooking galore!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

what a great market... it was super busy but not a cart running into me or up-my-back. The variety is great. This is a well oiled, well managed machine!
