Seaport Farmer’s Market is up and running.

Saturday, August 7th was opening day of the newly established Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market.  Two of my colleagues were at the market and share their experiences below…

-With an estimated 3000 – 5000 people in the venue at one time the Seaport Market and the neighbourhood, had a Granville Island feel.

– The building itself offered a fascinating assortment of natural light, greenery, water views and of course gastronomic delights.

– Many of the vendors had not anticipated the huge crowds – some were running low on stock or had to close early.

– The water views of Georges Island and the sail boats were amazing – I even caught a few vendors looking.

– There is ample parking including lots at Pier 21, the Cunard Centre and the Westin.  Additionally, there is street parking around Cornwallis Park.  As for pedestrians, the market is a great area to stroll and the boardwalk is located along side of it.

More pictures and experiences from the opening day of the market are available through The Coast.

The best way to enjoy the market is in person.  The smells, sounds, sights and hustle & bustle can not be exprienced the same way through words and photos.
