Our Year-Round Market on the South Shore

Welcome to the Lunenburg Farmers' Market

"As soon as you walk through the front door of the Market, the smell of omelettes cooking quickly finds its way to your nose followed by the eye-opening aroma of freshly brewed local coffee. Your taste buds begin to tingle with the thought of tasting this home cooking made with love. Your eyes open wide at the sight of so many vibrant colours of the fresh produce, baked goods, artisans crafts, jams, jellies and more.

Your attention turns to the welcoming sound of chatter, laughter and mingling of happy customers enjoying the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are many vendors offering not only their goods and food items but a welcoming hello and friendly conversation. There are people of all ages and diverse backgrounds, all sharing the same experience. What a truly delightful place!" ~ Louise D, Market Visitor
