From local produce to seafood pies and icecream Masstown Market is a must. Oh, did I mention you can also pick up local wine and beer. Sugar donut and coffee anyone. A big lawn for dogs to stretch their legs too.

We usually stop at the Masstown market for a coffee and some fresh baked sweets. A great place to get out of the car to walk, shop for some local products and eat. You will get lots of gift ideas for all occasions.

The staff are pleasant enough, there's local and reasonably priced produce, but it's so busy and the new parking lot configuration is even worse than it used to be. I try to avoid at all costs.

We stopped to get veggies and fruit on our way home from PE and stayed for lunch as well. We had the fish and chips at the Resturant and it was excellent and very large portion for a one piece order! Highly recommend.
