The Wolfville’s Farmer’s Market is a great spot for local food, crafts, artists and even authors. Not to mention the live music and local breweries, wineries and distilleries. Visit the market to pick up your produce and meat (much of it organic; all of it local), chat with local entrepreneurs and artists, or just have lunch (or, during the summer, supper on a Wednesday) and people watch while listening to the music. You’ll get a great cross section of the town and surrounding area.
Everyone seems to love being there, from the market staff and volunteers, to vendors, to visitors.
My favourite lunch/supper is an Alpine Burger from the Harbourville folks with some local apple juice. I usually pick up some Fox Hill Cheese as well.
I highly recommend a stop here, whether you’re a local resident or visiting the area, even if you can’t buy anything. It’s like seeing all of the valley in one spot!
Go on a Saturday for the full vendor selection.
Visit on a Wednesday for smaller crowds and to catch interesting community talks and panels.
