About the Market
We are a community-based Farmers' Market venue for local producers to sell directly to their customers. The market is operated by the Bridgewater Farmers' Market Association, a non-profit society. Every Saturday, from June through October, our vendors gather along the side of the former Bridgewater Memorial Arena (between the former Seniors' Complex and the Senior's Park) at 123 Empire Street (corner of Empire & Churchill St.) in Bridgewater, NS, on Nova Scotia's beautiful South Shore.
Our Current Location
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Town of Bridgewater.
The Town of Bridgewater has been sponsering our port-a-potty for the past several seasons, contributed funds for permanent improvements to the market, and supported our Food Truck Party.
Thanks to a grant from the Resource Recovery Fund Board (RRFB), we have been able to buy two sorting stations to help our customers and vendors to properly dispose of their waste.
More About the Market
We look forward to talking to our loyal shoppers every week and hope to welcome new customers.
This outside market stays open rain or shine. We promise ever-expanding displays of farm-fresh produce; a variety of tasty food products from local growers and producers. For the discerning shopper, we have most of the staples to satisfy your needs, including locally grown pork, lamb, beef, poultry and seafood. Talk to local growers/producers. We take great pride in the quality and variety of our seasonal products that are the foundation for delicious and healthy choices! This is certainly reason enough to buy "locally."
Picked at their Prime
Picked at their prime, and grown or produced close to home - check out our vegetables, seasonal fruits, bread and baked goods, condiments, plants & flowers, fresh honey, meat, fish, free-range eggs, and more.
