Great spot to do a little shopping. From alcohol to bread, Masstown Market has it all. My favourite is the seafood pie with lobster. I always pick a couple up to habe on hand at home. Good spot to walk your dog too.

I've never really been a fish & chips fan, so I didn't really miss it when I quit gluten 4 years ago. But my husband loves F&C so when we found out theirs was Gluten Free, we made the hour+ long drive to try. We were not disappointed! We fell in love, and so did the kids. We can't wait... More

Great spot to stop for a water and bit to eat on a road trip. Gas is across the street. Groceries, ice cream, bakery and a caferifia style restaurant. Worth the view.

I always love to stop at the Masstown Market and pick up baked goods. Sometimes I find lovely items in the gift section. It is also a really nice place to stop for a quick lunch. However, last time through, the washrooms were filthy to the point where we didn't even dare use them. I hope that they will take... More
