The Farmer's Market is open every Saturday from 9am to 2pm. In the summers it's also open on Wednesdays. There is a large variety of food, crafts, and other things available. Since many immigrants from other parts of the world sell food there, you can see how Charlottetown is become more multicultural, and get a taste of international food. It can get busy sometimes, but it's always a nice place to have a snack or even a meal (since the food is so good, you'll want to eat till you're full!). Admission is free and the food is usually quite cheap.
The food available includes fair trade coffee, ice cream, donuts, sausages, Indian, African, Lebanese, Filipino, Polish, etc. There are also Island-grown organic vegetables and meat products if you are shopping for groceries.
The crafts and other things available include locally-made jewelry, pottery, paintings, hand-knitted clothing, etc.
The Farmer's Market is located on Belvedere Avenue, close to the university. Often, since parking is terrible at the university, students leave their cars in the Farmer's Market parking lot and run across the street to campus.
A great variety.
A bit of everything here...Cajun, Thai, seafood, steaks, chicken, pork etc.
I didn't eat here on my trip, but it was among the great eating spots recommended by others. Perhaps next time.... Main course prices range from $13.99 for a half-rack of BBQ Pork Ribs, to the Rack of Lamb, for $26.99.
One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.
"Prince Edward Island is a must see of canada.."
The Island is of red clay, red cliffs, red rock & white sand. Just a breath taken veiw. It's population ia about 138,000. 80 precent of the people there are of English, Irish or Scottish ancestry 15 percent french and the remaning 5 percent mostly of native mi'kmaq. I didn't have a digital cam then so I took a pic of my pic's. I hope it turned out alright.
"There's plenty of thing to do in summertime."
Sightseeing is always great the landscaping is so beautiful. Here I am near a light tower. If you like fishing take the time and do so It's great. We chartered a boat and went deepsea fishing. A few of my friends had gone down and rented a chalet they spent most of there time on Cavendish beach they said they loved it.
"Prince Edward Islanders love there land"
and live from it. Potatoes, fishing. (lobster yum) And they are the friendliest people you'll ever meat. Throughtout the summer they have different festivals. I went to the horse trace where it's a big event. For the family there's the musical Anne of Green Gables. ( I also had the chance to see it, it was very good.)
