Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market was established in 1750 - just think about that for a moment - and now houses more than 250 vendors selling everything from fresh seafood, fish, meat, bread, veggies, cheese, coffee, and just about everything else you could possibly imagine.
Rolling through the market sampling the best in local grub is a wonderful experience, and often serves as an introduction to food stuffs you've never seen or heard of.
Visit on an exciting Halifax gastro adventure with www.localtastingtours.com, now offering $30 culinary walking tours.
Start with Laughing Whale coffee, and split the breakfast pizza upstairs from Bramoso and a lobster roll and kettle chips from Goldwater Lobster Shack with a friend, then finish it off with a macaron from Gourmandises Avenue Chocolaterie. To-go take Dutchman's farm Gouda cheeses, wine from all over Nova Scotia, and every type of meat from Getaway Farms (especially the ground beef). Besides the food, the view is absolutely stunning - try the balcony beside Bramoso or take the stairs to the rooftop deck for a 360 degree view of Halifax.
