Dartmouth’s Harbourview Market is a convenient combination of farmer’s market, flea market and antique market that has attracted an enthusiastic base of vendors and customers since its opening in the summer of 2009, says manager Les Baird.
“The deals are good and the people are friendly,” says Judy Oliver, a local resident who walks to the Harbourview Market weekly to shop for clothing, gifts and groceries. “It’s kind of like going to the mall, but it’s all in one spot.”
Shoppers can choose from a wide range of products including produce, meats, baked goods, candy, jewelry, antiques, crafts, DVDs, books, clothing, games and Christmas items.
The food court offers a great place for conversation over coffee and breakfast, lunch or snacks from vendors who offer a wide variety of delicious, multi-cultural foods.
