  • We stopped here to pick up a seafood pie for our dinner. You can pick one up already boxed, as they are in a cooler in the area where the restaurant is located. The seafood pie with lobster is more ex...  read more »

  • I love Masstown Market! I have grown up going to this store. It's the perfect place to go for ice cream on a hot summer day, or for delicious baked goods or fresh produce :) They have a huge selection of delicious food, as well as a restaurant, liquor store, and a great selection of gifts and home decor. You can find pretty much anything you're looking for here.
  • Don't drive by, drive in! This is a must stop for all kinds of food stuffs, gifts, etc. There's a grocer store, in house bakery, deli, tables if you want to eat in. They have fish and chips, chowders, their fresh donuts are always a hit. Lots of snacks for the road. Pop by, I bet you won't be disappointed!!
  • Located in a laid back, picturesque rural community, Masstown Market is a thriving business. Following media coverage for an award won for a seafood dish unique to MM, clever social media advertising....not to mention word of mouth referrals, MM's appeal has spread internationally. I'm a regular who lives locally and drop in for either a coffee, one of their plethora of yummy baked sweets or one of they're dizzying selection of ice creams. I try to sit at my regular booth or very close to it as it's perfectly situated for "people watching". You'll see people of all nationalities dropping in while holidaying from around the globe. They also have a huge produce section, a decent grocery section, gift shop, gardening center, and even a liquor store. They're produce and meats are supplied by local farms and there's a big emphasis on organic. It's beautiful to sit outside in the summer. They also host antique car exhibitions, and live music. Finally, let's not forget the "Catch Of The Bay" fish & chip restaurant and take out. It's uniquely shaped like a lighthouse, has indoor and outdoor seating and boasts the best fish & chips this side of the pond! :-) Strangely enough, a lady of British origin works the counter. ;-) In conclusion, I'd say MM is certainly a "must visit" for anyone holidaying in Nova Scotia.
  • This is a "must" for anyone who's going in NS for first time. Nice market where you can actually eat fresh and hot food. Petro Canada across the street with clean bathrooms and an Express Tim. Amazing fish n chips at the restaurant on the side of the "Catch of the Bay"market. Two thumbs up!!
  • Busy. Like crazy busy. Sandwiches were awesome, and the chowder was pretty good. It looked like the bakery has lots to offer, but we were there late in the afternoon so it was pretty picked over.
