    A great place to experience local vendors and see what NS has to offer. I also enjoyed the vendors from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds - great way to explore all that in one place. Oh by the way, there are talented local musicians playing live as well.

    Great farmers market with much to offer. Many food choices, crafts and arts to choose from. Didn't run into a single vendor who wasn't friendly. Tried many great items. Would recommend and visit again. Awesome views as well.

    Nice building with good vendors. The price is okay but nothing too extraordinary. It also gets very packed around 10-11am
