Mabou Farmers Market acknowledges we are in Mi’kma’ki – the unceded territory and ancestral homeland of the Mi’kmaq Nation. Our relationship is based on a series of Peace and Friendship treaties between the Mi’kmaq Nation and the Crown, dating back to 1725. In Nova Scotia we recognize that We are All Treaty People.
The Mabou Farmers’ Market brings you the fruit of our land, our seas, and our hands! We are home to over 50 vendors who produce a wide variety of local vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs, eggs, jams and jellies, baked goods, sausages, oysters, grass-fed meats, beer and wines.
A vibrant community gathering place, we have professional musicians each week. Tap your toes to the music or mix and mingle with friends and neighbours all while enjoying lunch or a delicious snack. Find the perfect gift from a selection of leather works, jewelry, hand-dyed scarves, cards, handspun yarn goods, wooden spoons, body care products, and more.
Open every Sunday from 11am to 2pm, June to the October long weekend, at the Mabou Athletic Centre, 186 Mabou Harbour Road. We look forward to seeing you soon!
