On our way south through New Brunswick, somewhere around Fredericton, we got word of a market that we shouldn’t pass up. The Jennings family began the Masstown Market as a farm-gate operation in the spring of 1969 and it has grown to become a local landmark. It’s fully accessible, barrier free, year round, 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm. The large clean washrooms are a welcome offering for the weary traveller. There are even kennels, fresh water and green space available for anyone with dogs.
Fruits & vegetables, a bakery, local homemade chowders, soups and pies, ice cream from a local dairy, local meat and cheeses and of course, a NSLC liquor boutique.
The full-size reproduction lighthouse houses a fresh fish shop. Order your fish & chips from the restaurant in the (reproduction) boat and dine on the dock (deck). On clear days you can see the Bay of Fundy in the distance from the top of the lighthouse.
