Wreath by Tulipwood at Lunenburg Farmers’ Market.

With the holidays upon us, local farmers’ markets across the province are preparing for the shopping season. Nova Scotia is home to 50 farmers’ markets and over 1500 vendors, many of which focus on handmade craft. There is no shortage of opportunity this year to support your Nova Scotian neighbours with all of these wonderful farmers’ market holiday events. Shoppers can find a variety of handmade products including beeswax candles and wraps, soap, art prints, wool products, textiles, woodcraft, pottery, and more. You can also pick up some holiday floral arrangements, beer and wine, and prepared food items for the foodie on your list. These events are family friendly, and offer great local food and drink options to keep shoppers happy!
