The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Pub-Crawl Like a Victorian in Halifax


4. Insider's Tip

Regardless of how late your night was, spend Saturday morning at the Halifax Farmer's Market. Located in the nineteenth-century Keith's Brewery building on Lower Water Street, it claims to be the oldest farmer's market in North America. Get there early if you want your pick of the best produce before it’s bought out by voracious city chefs. Sample single malts from Cape Breton island, eat freshly made crêpes at Crêperie Mobile, and buy organic cheeses (at Ran Cher Acres), artisanal breads (at Mary's Bread Basket), and the best smoked salmon this side of Zabar's (at Mike's Fish Shop).
