There are lots of neat shops: jewelry, souvenirs, candy, food, Harley gear, license plates and lots of other booths. It’s very close to the cruise terminal. You have to show your ship card to get in. We bought some jewelry and a magnet. Decent prices.

We arrived and n Halifax on a cruise ship, and walked around the general broadwalk area. We eventually stopped in the Farmers Market And stopped at Goldwater’s Seafood. We ordered Lobster Rolls and thought they were very good.

This review is about Goldwater's Seafood which is located at the Farmer's Market. We are lobster roll junkies. We have planned whole trips up north around lobster rolls. The lobster rolls we had at Goldwater's were the best we've ever had! Nuff said!

They open early with people queuing at 6.30 am - opens 7 am. There is a large car park near the Cunard centre Pier 23. We arrived by ship so parking wasn't an issue.

There are numerous spots to grab a bite..... but the best spot to eat is up on the roof top.... if it isn't too windy.... or on the steps where you can watch everyone milling around the vendors.
