When my friend Wendy saw that I was in Halifax she sent me a message saying I might enjoy checking out the Masstown Market, since we would be near it on our trip back to Cape Breton. I am so glad she clued us in to that Market. It is fabulous! So many fresh vegetables from local farmers and fresh fish as well.
When we arrived the parking lot was almost full, but luckily we found a spot right beside the lighthouse, and it was in a shady area that was perfect for Maggie. It wasn't hot though because it was an overcast day.

Dan stayed with Maggie while Alice and I headed for the fresh vegetable area of the market. There was a little bit of everything--we found beet greens, green beans, yellow beans, and sweet potatoes.

|A box of wild blueberries.|
|I'll use these to make blueberry shortcake.|
|A new kind of brownie.|
The highlight for Dan was the fish market in the "lighthouse". They had quite an array of fish and seafood goodies.

I don't know how we have missed this place all these years, but I am very grateful to Wendy for suggesting we visit it. We will go back.
