If you are at Halifax, do catch the interesting Farmer's Market which opens every Saturday from 7am to 1pm. This market has many sections, ranging from vegetables, meat, bread, seafood, wine, art etc. Interesting sutff in the market include the maple wine and syrup of Nova Scotia and there is a store selling lobster hotdog. You should try this hotdog as it is very delicious.
A very well organized Market that offers everything form fresh produce to Alcohol. The only bad thing about the market is that it somewhat hard to get around if you have never been there before.....Good luck finding the Alcohol stands that offer free samples!!!
The old Brewery Market lived in the original Keith's Brewery building for many a year. Some of it is still there but most of the vendors have moved to a shiny renovated building on the waterfront by the container piers in the old Pier 20 building. It is next to Pier 21, the museum and has spectacular views over the harbour from a wall of windows. There are cafes, lots of fruit, veg, meat and cheese vendors, some hot cooked food vendors, artisans and crafts people. It's really hopping!
It initially opened just Saturdays but is aiming to be open nearly every day. Currently the Farmers' Market goes Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Friday and Friday is also the International market day. Some of the vendors are already open most of the week including Fox Hill Cheese House, The Fish House and Gourmandises Avenue.
There's a bus route that now goes from the Scotia Square "terminal" down to the Piers and back uptown along the historic waterfront to the Ferry Terminal, it's the number 8 bus. Most Halifax busses connect to Scotia Square on Barrington Street.
