Inside the port’s Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion, the Big Fiddle Market provides a welcoming space for Cape Breton’s artisans and craftspeople to sell their handmade treasures. As you browse through the collections (which include jewelry, knitting, weaving, wood and stone carvings, stained glass, photography, paintings and Christmas ornaments), you can talk to the artists who created the works before you make your selections.
