It's a farmers' market, grocery and eating spot all rolled into one, with a shaded porch and patio to take your food during the warmer season. You order your food at the counter, pay and then pick it up, carry it with you or outside...More

Love this market, bakery and deli. It has a great vibe and wonderful fresh food. Today I tried the veggie samosas and a lemonade for a snack and picked up a blueberry pie for later. The baked goods are to die for!

Have now been there twice this year. Bean salad was so oily it was like soup. Samosa was heated in a microwave and it was a soggy mess. The second time I went we ordered lobster sandwiches at $15.00 a pop. It was ordinary white...More

Nice atmosphere with a wide range of choices, but entirely too over-priced. Cool to visit in October when they have a fall harvest theme with pumpkins on the roof.

Hi Jo-Ann, Last year I was in Mahone Bay and loved your outside sitting area. I was inspired! I would love to cover my deck with something similar. Would you be willing to share the name of the product that you used that lets the light in but keeps the light out? Is it clear or "frosted?" Does it get too hot underneath there? It seems like it really works! Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks so much! Shelly, Atlantic, Shelburne Co. NS

Since 1986 we have delighted in providing delicious gourmet food to both residents and visitors to Mahone Bay. What started as a simple fruit stand has grown into a market, gourmet deli, bake shop, cafe, jammery and ice cream parlor.
