Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market

My love of farmer's markets spreads far and wide. I try to stop at one in every city and town I visit, if possible. I've been to farmer's markets all over the world: in Italy and Spain, Korea and Thailand, New Mexico and Boston. And while all of the markets I've visited have fueled my love of local foods and markets, I think that the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market will always be my favourite market in the entire world.

The market has two floors jam packed with vendors selling anything and everything you could possibly imagine. There is local produce, local cheeses and meats, fresh baked goodies, and some of the best breakfast options in Halifax. Every Saturday that we go I am so conflicted about what to have for breakfast. I want to try everything, but every time I try something new, I just want to get that over and over again, because how can anything be more delicious? Breakfast pizza, breakfast sushi, breakfast sandwiches, crepes, waffles, croissants and cronuts, cornish pastys, Indian food by the bucket full, gourmet coffees and teas, fresh squeezed juices, Antiguan food, Chinese food, steamed buns, gluten free and vegan treats, sea food and lobster rolls, authentic Mexican and Greek food... the possibilities are endless. The Halifax Seaport Market was one of our first stops when we moved back to Halifax from Korea. It's my absolute favourite place to bring Halifax visitors, particularly when the rooftop patio, which looks out over the Halifax Harbour, is open. 

We try to go to the market every Saturday. I happened to bring my camera with me today when we went. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, 5 degrees and sunny (41 degrees Fahrenheit). It was so lovely that I decided to share some photos from the market today and from the past few months. If you are ever in Halifax, I strongly encourage you to make sure you stop by the Seaport Market!


  1. Great post, Kait! This is probably the place I miss most in Halifax! Salivating at the idea of going this summer:) -Melissa

    1. It was pretty much the first place we went when we got back last year! And there are so many new things! And things have been moved around! You will have fun exploring it all over again this summer :) Can't wait to see you!

  2. Beautiful photos. Farmers' markets are my favorite, and Halifax looks gorgeous!

  3. The Cornish pasties are my absolute favourite! Even thought I just live 25 minutes outside of the city, it's been so long since I've been! It's such a great atmosphere at the HSFM. Great post, and great photos!

    P.S Have you checked out the Java Factory across the road? Their Halifax fog is amazing!
