For anyone who knows us well, they know we adore going to the Seaport Farmers Market as much as we can. Normally, this looks like every second weekend, but not always can we make it that often.
Why do we love it?
Their are many markets in HRM. For us, the Seaport Market became a habit, and we love knowing we are buying from local vendors to improve our own local economy. It means we have a relationship with the woman who sells us our eggs and we know that guy who sells Susie's Cupcakes (a local bakery) while we drool over them every time.
We are exposed to the many cultures our port city is blessed to have within it's core. The German bakers, the asian cuisine and the Indian spices are just a few. Mixed with that all to well known maritime food and music.
Knowing I am buying from farms that bring their produce in from various places over Nova Scotia gives me a peace of mind and also an amazement over how differently they taste in comparison with the grocery stores imports. Even something as simple as an egg from a local free range farm tastes completely different than from super store.
Even though many of the people we knew who lived in the downtown core have since moved away , we still find it amazing the people from our lives we bump into. The market has a way of creating enjoyment for everyone's tastes buds and ultimately, I love how connected I feel to my city every time we go.
