About
The Halifax Farmers' Market was created by Royal Proclamation in June of 1750, a year after the founding of Halifax. The Governor and Council designated a site for the Market - the present day Bank of Montreal building. For 50 years this flesh, meat or cattle market, as it was known, sold produce as well as livestock delivered from Acadian farms in the Annapolis Valley and from local farm production. In 1848 the City of Halifax was incorporated and the original City Charter conveyed the Country Market property to the city "for the public and common benefit and use of the City of Halifax according to the true interest and meaning of the original grant." The Market has operated in several locations across the city since its inception in 1750, but moved to the Halifax Seaport in 2010 where it is now known as the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market - the longest continuously running Market in North America and proudly hosting over 250 vendors! Halifax Seaport The Halifax Seaport is a vibrant arts and cultural district found at the south end of the Halifax waterfront. Extending from Piers 19 to 23, you will find artisans, retailers, cruise terminals, event facilities, cafes, galleries, offices, a museum, a university and the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market. This district has been redeveloped to showcase local talent and is now a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

Vibrant Farmer’s Market near Halifax Pier 21 and Waterfront Boardwalk
Oct. 2019
During our “10-Day Canada and New England” cruise aboard Caribbean Princess ship last October, we had a chance to visit Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market near Pier 21 and the Waterfront Boardwalk. After a pleasant walk along Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk, we visited the market which was between the boardwalk and Pier 21 where our ship was waiting for us. The market was vibrant and bustling with crowds around so many eateries along with diverse farm product and sea food stalls. Street musicians were performing music, generating a festive mood. One side of the market had a great view of the sea and an island with a beautiful red lighthouse. It was an interesting attraction in Halifax.

Nice place

We didn't have any expectations but we were surprised by the number of folks selling their items.
We purchased a few asian meals and some christmas decorations.
Nice, spacious and clean. It was a bit on the cool side so make sure to bundle up.

Lots of variety; many things you can sample, and obviously lots to purchase, from books, to food, to clothes. A neat space to check out if you're walking down the boardwalk.

Best Farmers Market Ever.
Nov. 2019
Hand crafted cider's in many flavors. Pure with no sugar added was the best.
Check out the Dutch cheese guy, we enjoyed the gouda, produced locally.
We just went last weekend and there as still some fresh veggies, try the radishes.
Our absolute favorite is the hand crafted balsamic with blueberry flavor, wow...
